Candy Apple Red Amaryllis
Photograph - Photography
The Amarllis species name is Hippeastrum, sold as bulbs around Christmas time. Hippeastrum is Greek for "horseman's star" (also known today as "knight's star"). The flower colors include red, rose, pink, white, orange, yellow, and pale green with variations on these including different colored stripes and edges on the petals. Although most Hippeastrums come from the Dutch and South African sources, bulbs are now being developed in the United States, Japan, Israel, India, Brazil and Australia. This beautiful Knight's Star blooms in my yard here in Hawaii every year.
