description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Amigo'"
Like a faithful friend, 'Amigo' never lets you down at those times you need a morale booster the most... in winter, when fair-weather flowers fade from view. This bulb produces a pair of 18-inch-tall stems. Like two sticks of dynamite, they explode into fiery clusters of 4 dark pink/red flowers, each bloom a magnificent 8 inches across. Stage a friendly competition with a succession of potted sidekicks, planted one week apart. Size counts! You will see the difference between top size bulbs and smaller varieties. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
