Botanical Name: Hippeastrum 'Papilio Improved'
Common Name: Papilio Improved Amaryllis
1 large bulb
Hippeastrum. Amaryllis are special, magical bulbs. Nothing brings more joy, color and song to our spirits than Amaryllis flowers as winter's long, dark days approach. Amaryllis are the Art and Soul of Winter. If you want your Amaryllis to bloom in time for the holidays, select from among our Christmas Flowering Amaryllis from South Africa. Grown in the southern hemisphere, these Amaryllis are more eager to pop out of dormancy than those grown in the Netherlands in the northern hemisphere. They may be potted in October for gorgeous flowers in just four to six weeks, right on time for the holidays.
Commonly referred to as the Butterfly Amaryllis, this exotic beauty has narrow, recurved flowers of cream, burgundy and bronze with strappy, dark-green foliage. An evergreen variety, Papilio need not be forced into dormancy like other Amaryllis. While it may not bloom the first season, it will throw off increasingly more flowers as it matures as a plant over time.
Please note: Amaryllis height may vary. Plants tend to be taller when grown under lower light conditions.
- Plant height: to 24" H
- Hardy in zones 8-10
- Flowers are cream, burgundy and bronze
- Indoors: High Light, part shade outdoors (they will naturalize outdoors)
