Lee-  Your photo looks a lot like H. papillio with most of the maroon
missing.   The early blooming time is also characteristic. Mine are
blooming right now but the rest of the hippeastrum's buds have barely
started to emerge.
These Japanese hybrids are very interesting.  Do you think there is any
chance of doing a group order from Japan.  I might be willing to
coordinate it.

From Lee:
I added a photo of a Japanese (Komoriya) hybrid Hippeastrum called 
'Yume Mitai' which means 'Looks Like a Dream' in Japanese.

Does anyone have a guess as to which species they may have crossed to 
get this?
