Your Hybrid Hippeastrum appears to resemble Cherry Nymph which has eight inch 
flowers,however it is not miniature.It may be an unnamed variety.It is quite 
pretty,whatever it is.

Subject: [pbs] re Double Red Hippeastrum…

I recently bought this Hippeastrum as "Red Amaryllis" at a local plant 
nursery.  I asked the shop assistant if she would find out the full name 
and explained that it actually was called a Hippeastrum.

Have just been talking with her as she checked and the growers got the 
bulbs in a consignment just labelled "mixed red Amaryllis".  Doesn't say 
much for the growers, however, I would like to know the name of this 
dwarf Hippeastrum.  There is no white on the flower, it is pure red.  
The flower is 20cms tall (8")
