description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Clown'"

The circus comes to town every time you pot a large-flowering 'Clown.' A regular attraction since 1980, this crowd-pleasing variety doesn't goof off when its time to perform. Red-and-white striped flowers resembling the eye-catching pattern of Barnum & Bailey's Big Tent bloom in two troops of 4 flowers, each dangling from atop a 16-inch-tall stem. The size of the bulb you buy counts! -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
