Amaryllis 'San Remo'

Genus: Hippeastrum.

Species: Hippeastrum papilio.

Almost double the size of all my others, it stand about 1 meter tall. The blooms were a good salad plate size and had a fine fruity fragrance. The first blooming at my house had two stalks each carrying about five blooms. Really a show stopper! I plan to over summer in the greenhouse or some such outside place and fertilize deep a feww times to keep well fed. I should have a similar flush next winter and maybe even get some babies.
