description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Hermitage'"

'Hermitage' is named for the fine French wine. The grape-red blooms of 'Hermitage' are "bottled up" in top size bulbs, just waiting for you to uncork their potential. Savor the bouquets on two 18-inch-tall stems, each rivaling the other in beauty with four 8-inch-wide flowers, opening to reveal white stars. One bulb may only whet your thirst for this exquisite vintage, so plan on making consecutive pottings to prolong the party through the winter months. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
