Amaryllis/Hippeastrum: Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) Database
|Hippeastrum have been hybridized for over two hundred and there are now several hundred cultivars of hippis and the list keeps growing. Many amaryllis are winter hardy to zone 7 with some protection. They die to the ground in freezing weather and come back from the bulb in the spring. Amaryllis flowers come in several colors, shapes and flower positions. When adding to the database you may skip those items you are not sure of. Someone will fill them in later.|
