Hippeastrum 'Calimero' - Photo by Mark Wilcox, 23 January 2005. These blooms come from a 12 inch/30 cm pot that's sunk into a zone 7 garden except in winter, when it's brought inside to bloom, protected from freezing.
Hippeastrum 'Candy Floss' has very large pink flowers with a central white star. Photos taken June 2007 by Jay Yourch.

Hippeastrum 'Double Pecotee' This one is always an eye catcher. It is a very dependable bloomer and seems to like our weather here in So. CA. I do not know much about its background. Photo by Doug Westfall.
Hippeastrum evansiae × Hippeastrum reginae - This is first bloom on a hybrid of the 2 wild-collected species (ex Kevin Preuss). Both parents are Brazilian. The flower is red brushed on a light yellow background, with green in the center. Unlike most modern hybrids, so far there are only 2 blooms per scape. Photo by Mark Wilcox, taken in January of 2004.
Hippeastrum 'Fairy Tale' is a small selection with red and white striped flowers. Photo taken June 2007 by Jay Yourch.
