Hippeastrum Red White - Amaryllis

Hippeastrum Red White is often sold as a ready to bloom bulb for the holidays. That is how this bulb came to us. Once established in the garden Hippeastrum Red White blooms for us in the late Spring and early Summer in sun or shade. Hippeastrum Red White tolerates a dry section of the garden and requires decent drainage either by being in a raised bed or with a well drained potting soil. Hippeastrum Red White lasts a long time as a container plant if they are not over watered. Hippeastrum Red White and other cultivars are Winter hardy into zone 9 or even colder with adequate protection. Hippeastrum Red White does best when planted in the ground in coastal communities in the shade of deciduous trees.
