Description
formosissima - This native to Mexico, sometimes offered as Amaryllis formosissima, is reminiscent of a large (5") red, velvet orchid atop a 8"-12" stem. The petals of the flower are in 2 groups - the upper 3 stand up, curving back at the tips, while the lower 3 are pendent, rolling up like a tube at the base, encircling the stamens. This pest resistant bulb sports similar foliage to that of its family member, the daffodil and makes a great hot-colored container plant with many other summer bloomers. Full sun and well-drained soil are recommended. 16 cm bulbs; 4-5 per sq. ft.; zones 8-10.
