Anyone know what flower this is?

jessymrnApril 2, 2013

Hi everyone, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. New to gardening and new to this site. We moved into our new home and it is filled with different types of plants, flowers, trees most of which I can't identify.

If any of you know what this is, let me know. Pictured...I found that the yellow flower is actually a weed. Need to know what the red and white flower is.

It's a hippeastrum (aka amaryllis). I don't know the variety. The one called "hardy amaryllis" is H. johnsonii...the way I can tell mine is that the leaves are kind of reddish...

Jessy, they are beautiful. I think they are the very common Hippeastrum 'Minerva'.

I meant to say Minerva, sorry, The three common ones are Red Lion, Apple Blossom, and Minerva. I buy them after Christmas when they mark them down 75%. Barbra

Thank you all so much for your replies! Really appreciate it. Carrie, I'm about 2 hours south of Austin so yes they are blooming here too. I've got three in the backyard and just planted two more in the front.

The "weed" is Esparanza aka yellow bells
