description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Vera'"

The simple abundance of a bulb of 'Vera' is all you'll need to bring spring into any room of your house. But don't stop with just one! Pot up a few of 'Vera' for yourself, and send some to special friends. Anticipating the large-flowering spectacle is half the fun. The suspense grows when the bulging packages of 4 buds on two 20-inch-tall stems unwrap to reveal stunning, 8-inch-wide, pink blossoms. That's a lot of bang for your buck! -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
