   I have read it passes some of its virus resistence to its progeny, this
of course is just speculation as I don't know.

   There is an article written in Herbertia called 'Progeny of Hippeastrum
papilio' by John Fellers, he suggests that some of the resistence is passed
into offspring.  This is a quote from his article

"Pure *H. papilio* appears relatively resistant to some diseases that
plague other Hippeastrum. This trait seems to be passed on to some of the
progeny, but it is not universal."
