description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Flavio'"

'Flavio' uses the color pink to turn the winter blues into a ruse. It doesn't take a poet to appreciate the natural healing powers of flowers. Simply pot up bulb of large-flowering 'Flavio' for a soothing dose of 4 pink blossoms--each 8 inches wide--per stem. Though the two 16-inch-tall flower stalks will cure your need for color, you can't overdose on these mood-lifters, so write a prescription that includes a few refills. -- edited by pbcouchman
