Amarylis 'piquant'

Genus: Hippeastrum.

Species: Hippeastrum papilio.

My first amarylis, inspired me to go directly to the nursery for more. Huge striped petals with fascinating structure. I had a baby sprout alongside as well. I plan moving the plant to the garden for summer to help it juice up for next winter. I'm so excited!
