description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Lilac Wonder'"

'Lilac Wonder' will make you think spring has arrived early when you witness this winter wonder. Resembling old-fashioned lilacs in color, the dark pink blooms of 'Lilac Wonder' are a cool contrast to the traditional reds and greens of the season. If trumpet describes the shape of most amaryllis blossoms, then this brassy, large-flowering variety bellows out a trio of tuba-size blooms--measuring an impressive 9 inches across--on each of two 18-inch-tall stems. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
