Flower ID, please

cherylbaldwin1November 12, 2012

I have enjoyed these flowering bulbs for 25 years, shared them with dozens of friends and other than thinking this is a hippeastrum, do not know its name. They bloom three to five times a year, have always lived in the house and thrive and bloom in variable light conditions. Any ideas? Thank you!

Cheryl,
Are they red or peach?

H. Striatum?? Do a search on-line for images and see if this matches what you have!

I won't be transplanting again for several months - mark your calender to send me an email in, say, June or July and I'll share some with you.

Sounds good. Will plan for it! I'll trade some H. San Antonio Rose if you'd like.
