(Florist Amaryllis, Hippeastrum)

Best known for its showy-flowered hybrids which are sold under the misleading common name "amaryllis", Hippeastrum comprises about 80 species of bulbous perennials. All are grown for their fantastic flowers that are typically large, amaryllis-like and colorful. Most species are native to the subtropical and tropical regions of Central and South America and the West Indies, whereas true Amaryllis are native to South Africa.

(Amouretta Amaryllis, Florist Amaryllis, Hippeastrum)

The quaint miniature Hippeastrum, 'Amoretta' produces white flowers with blushes and streaks of coral pink that are most prominent on the petal tips. These are produced from late winter to spring. Don't let the common name fool you: like most so-called "amaryllis," this tender perennial bulb is a hybrid of the South American Hippeastrum rather than the South African Amaryllis.

Don't let the common name fool you. Like most so-called "amaryllis," this tender perennial bulb is a hybrid of the South American Hippeastrum rather than the South African Amaryllis.

One of a series of double-flowered "amaryllis" bred by Miyake Nursery in Japan, this 1999 introduction bears creamy white double to semi-double blooms with reddish pink blushing and veining. Don't let the common name fool you: like most so-called "amaryllis," this tender perennial bulb is a hybrid of the South American Hippeastrum rather than the South African Amaryllis.

(Angelique Florist Amaryllis, Florist Amaryllis, Hippeastrum)

The large pink and white flowers of 'Angélique' rise from seemingly short stout stems from spring into early summer. The wide powdery pink flowers have a silvery luster heavily overlaid with a pink blush. This hybrid was bred by Dutch breeder Jac J. Mense in the 1990s. Unlike true Amaryllis this tender perennial bulb is a hybrid of the South American Hippeastrum rather than the South African Amaryllis.

Introduced in 1994, it bears clusters of large showy double white blooms whose numerous frilly "petals" are flushed and edged with pink. The flowers have a lime-green throat.

(Baby Star Florist Amaryllis, Florist Amaryllis, Hippeastrum)

Although commonly known as amaryllis, 'Baby Star' is not a hybrid derived from the South African native Amaryllis belladonna but rather of Hippeastrum, native to South America. This tender perennial bulb bears showy red trumpet-shaped flowers with white midstripes on their petals. The flowers are half the size of those of typical "amaryllis". Purchased bulbs are conditioned to bloom in winter, but left to their own devices they bloom naturally from early spring to early summer....

(Blossom Peacock Amaryllis, Florist Amaryllis, Hippeastrum)

The stunning double blooms of 'Blossom Peacock' look like three flowers tucked symmetrically into each other. Each mildly fragrant flower has magenta-pink petals striped and blushed with white.
