Looks like an H. Vittatum - like heirloom to me.

I'm probably wrong but I thought I just saw these at Home Depot, and they all had 5 or 6 bulblet's growing off of them

I bought a bagged bulb at Walmart last year labeled as red and white. The resulting bloom was very similar. H. Vittatum figures into many of these... It's common and hardy.

Sorry this is what I saw, which is definitely not the same thing. I guess my memory isn't as good as I thought it was.

How do you recognise a vittatum hybrid ?

H.Vittatum appears in many gardens as they are very hardy and prolific. I know from my neighbor's batch that they are NOT resistant to virus!!

They are white with the red/raspberry pencil stripes. They are one of the early Hippeastrum that look a lot like the current hybrids, although they are smaller blooms. The Dutch have developed many large blooms, some with different tepal shapes and colors.

See the link for the photo from the Bulb Society's gallery.

Thanks for all , the link was very interesting.
Maybe growing it from seeds I won't have any virus ?

The flower shown is a hybrid with heavy H.Vittattum influence.It is resistant to some viruses,but not all.Growing it from seed will produce virus free plants
