description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Nagano'"

'Nagano' brilliant blooms capture an autumn sunset's burnt-orange hues. Unlike a day's all-too-fleeting burst of color before evening twilight takes hold, this enduring amaryllis' glow lingers long after it begins to bloom, giving you plenty of time to soak up the intensity of its warmth and beauty. Two 18-inch-tall stems of 'Nagano' each bear a veritable fireball of up to 5 or 6 flowers, a voluminous 9 inches in diameter. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
