description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Rilona'"

The exotic blooms of 'Rilona' brighten any room! The petals are a soft peach blend with ripples of deeper apricot. Amaryllis are easy to grow, even for the novice gardener. A clay pot, potting soil, good sun, and water is all that's needed. These fuss-free plants produce one or two 20-inch tall stalks topped with three and four large 6-to-8-inch trumpet blooms--which bloom just six to eight weeks after potting! -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
