Greetings, from GERMANY.

The nr.1 is H.puniceum=H.equestre.
Probably TETraploid 
Nr.2 and nr.3 are "heirloom" hybrids iow: Old hybrids. Probably TET
The nr.3 exhibits parentage of H.vittatum. Beautiful!
And with 5 or even 6 florets per scape = it's a winner!
IF I had these three Hippeastrums only, then I would consider to multiply it by selfpollinating.
Kind regards,
