description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Roma'"

With 'Roma', you need to brace yourself for a volcanic eruption of brilliant proportions when its lava-red flowers of burst into bloom. Emerging as the early warning system for fiery explosions to come, the two 14-inch-tall stems of this hotheaded hybrid each spew 4 flowers that measure 7 inches in diameter. Top-size bulbs maximize the volatility of 'Roma', so one may be all you can take. Potting a few together ensures a rapid succession of flowering flare-ups. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
