Plant Family Guides: Hippeastrum - Amaryllis Plant-Family Guides
More and more popular, the Cybister Amaryllis are truly spectacular with their exotic, orchid-like flowers. They feature long, ribbon-like, spidery petals and splashes of bright color such as deep reds, soft green, copper, dark pink, creamy white and burgundy. They are unlike any other Amaryllis group and their cultivars belong to the Spider group.
The Large Flowering Amaryllis group is the most popular group with single flowers up to 8-10 in (20-25 cm). Their cultivars belong to the Galaxy group. Each bulb usually produces 2-3 stems and 4-6 flowers per stem. These exquisite Amaryllis tend to grow up to 18-24 in. tall (45-60 cm). Depending on temperature, they bloom 6-10 weeks after planting.
One of the most impressive Amaryllis group is the Double Flowering Amaryllis group with flowers up to 8-10 in (20-25 cm). Their cultivars belong to the Double Galaxy group. Each bulb usually produces 2-3 stems and 4-6 flowers per stem. These dramatic Amaryllis tend to grow up to 18-24 in. tall (45-60 cm). Depending on temperature, they bloom 6-10 weeks after planting.
This plump bull is full of surprises! Plant and water it - and enjoy weeks, even months of lovely blossoms in the dark days of winter.
