description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Floris Hekker'"

'Floris Hecker' will heat up your winter! Have you ever felt hypnotized by the flickering flames of a candle or firelight? The ember-orange flowers of 'Floris Hecker' cast a similar spell on winter-weary spirits. This large-flowering beauty burns a long time because one bulb produces 3--not the usual 2--14-inch-tall, combustible stems. No matches are needed to light the heart-warming bundles of 4 to 5, 6-inch-wide blooms...but some assembly is required. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
