These are all the different Hippeastrum in the garden


Amaryllis_White - Hippeastrum____


Late Spring

Back to Plant list

Although these bulbs are sold as Amaryllis they are actually Hippeastrums . Amaryllis come from South Africa and Hippeastrums comes from the Americas. They are both from the same family Amaryllaceae. The larger the bulb you buy the greater the flower head of this Amaryllis. The problem is that if it cannot receive a long growing season the bulb gets smaller every year and the flower gets less until it stops flowering. As an indoor houseplant the result is fantastic.
