Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Scarlet Baby'
Botanical name: Hippeastrum 'Scarlet Baby'
Common name: miniature amaryllis
also known as (knights star-lily)
description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Scarlet Baby'"
'Scarlet Baby' bears a generous cluster of miniature amaryllis blooms that will light up the darkest winter day. Everyone loves a bouquet of bright red flowers! Quite different from the large-flowering Dutch or South African hybrids, miniatures nevertheless produce two (or even three) 18-inch tall stalks. The miniature trumpets are compact, informal, and gently ruffled at the edge. One-third the width of large-flowering amaryllis hybrids, miniatures produce long-lasting and beautiful blooms. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
