description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Sandra'"

All eyes are on the sleek and statuesque 'Sandra,' a large-flowering debutante in upper-class amaryllis circles. Planted in time to perform during the holidays, this family jewel is sure to turn heads at parties. No bashful wall flower here. At 20 inches tall, this bold beauty holds its flowerheads high in clusters of 4 blossoms, each 7 inches across. White stripes dress up the salmon-colored blooms, appropriate attire for any occasion. The size of the bulb you buy counts! -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
