Hi Ina,

Mary Sue may well have identified your Brunsvigia species if it is a 
Brunsvigia - but there is an alternative that looks identical to your 
Brunsvigia. Its the F1 cross between Amaryllis and Brunsvigia josephinea. 
F2 back crosses between the resulting F1 Amarygia's begin to produce larger, 
more colourful  and more robust Amaryllis look alikes.
