Years ago I had a solid orange-flowered Hippeastrum, and years before 
that I had a yellow-green flowered Hippeastrum.  I felt a bit nostalgic 
and went shopping for them and couldn't find anything remotely like what 
I wanted in any of the stores.

Was I just randomly lucky to find them in stores years ago?  Or have 
those varieties disappeared from general commerce?  All I found in the 
shops this week are white, pink, and red ones.  I also found a blue 
poinsettia which just looked bizarre.
