Description
Hippeastrum sonatini Pink Rascal has white flowers with soft pink brush marks and a green throat; 15"-24".

We normally see these as tall, indoor-forced winter plants.  However, when grown outdoors in the summer with more intense light and longer daylight hours, they bloom on much shorter stems in early-mid summer; we have planted them in our garden and have found them to be reliable, marvelous, eye-catching perennials.  It's worth a try to plant them below the frost line and in a micro-climate to see just how winter hardy we can make them!  12"-18" in full sun, taller in part shade; whz 7-10; also in whz 6 in sheltered locations, when planted deep and mulched well; 28/30 cm bulbs for standard size flower unless otherwise noted; 13+cm bulbs for sonatini types.

(*GROWING TIPS: Yes, these are the ones that we normally grow indoors in a pot during the winter. If you live in zone 7 or warmer and your soil is well-drained (or can raise the flower bed enough for it to be well-drained), if hippeastrums are planted in the garden this time of year below the frost line, you ought to be able to leave them in the garden and they ought to come back in subsequent years and are FABULOUS! They also make great cut flowers too, if you can stand to cut them!! If you live in zone 6 or colder, plant in the garden during the summer so the bulb gathers lots of nutrients during the long growing season, then lift the bulb about September 1st, put it in a dark, dry place (closet, dark basement, etc) and on November 1st, bring it out, pot it up and it will bloom for you during the winter. If you should decide to do this, PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR so you'll remember to dig the hippeastrum and give it a 'nap' in September-October and pot it up November 1st.
