I can recommend you a book: V. M. Read, Hippeastrum, the gardener's

the flower size strongly depends on growing conditions. For example, the 
‘Red Lion’ in the book is described as having 3 - 4 flowers, 16 - 18 cm in 
diameter. My ‘Red Lion’ looked exactly so in 2006. Next year flowers was 
even smaller - 14 cm. But next years it was grown by my mother and this 
spring had 5 - 6 flowers per scape, over 20 cm in diameter.
