description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Green Goddess'"
'Green Goddess' is pure beauty in bloom. It's bright white flowers are 7 inches wide and are accented with a delicate green center. Miniature amaryllises are quite different from the large-flowering Dutch or South African hybrids--but don't be misled by the term "miniature" as they produce 2 (or even 3) stalks to a height of 12 inches. The miniature trumpets are more compact, less formal, gently ruffled on the flowers' edge, and only one-third the width of large-flowering amaryllis hybrids. 'Green Goddess' is perfect for holiday forcing. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
