Full Description :

Hippeastrum species and cultivars produce long, strap-like, rather fleshy, mid-green leaves and magnificent, large, funnel-shaped flowers borne on strong flower stems. The flowers are made up of 6 petals, comprising 2 whorls of 3 petals, and commonly occur in shades of red, orange, white, or pink. Cultivars have extended the color range to include yellow shades, and the flowers, which open in late winter, are variously patterned. There are also double-flowered types.

These plants can be grown outdoors only in mild frost-free areas. For climates where frost is experienced they can be grown indoors in pots, or as greenhouse or conservatory plants. They will do best in a bright but not overly sunny position in moist, well-drained, humus-rich soil. The large bulbs should be planted with the neck of the bulb exposed above soil level. They have quite demanding water and nutrient requirements while in growth, so ensure that they receive ample water and nutrients at this time. Keep dry in winter while plant is in its winter dormancy. Propagate from natural offsets or seed.
