Hippeastrums come in a range of colours and mixtures of colours. Here this hippeastrum is unfolding its second stalk of flowers. The only problem I have with these bulbs is that the growing season over here is not long enough to replenish the energy that the bulb uses to produce these wonderful blooms. The bulb therefore tends to get smaller every year until eventually it stops flowering.
