Tony, Amaryllis belladonna is a synonym of Hippeastrum puniceum, is this what they may be speaking about? With both Hippeastrum and Amaryllis named in the article it's hard to tell? ________________________________ From: Tony Avent <Tony@plantdelights.com> To: 'Pacific Bulb Society' <email@example.com> Sent: Wednesday, July 18, 2012 3:55 PM Subject: [pbs] Amaryllis x hippeastrum hybrids Hi folks: In reading through some old Plant Life journals that a friend shared, I was fascinated by the mention in 1978 of a cross of Hippeastrum yellow hybrid from Len Doran with Amaryllis belladonna. The cross was made by Richard Tisch of California, and photos are included. I don't remember ever hearing of a Hippeastrum x Amaryllis cross before. Are there more? Anyone know this plant? Thanks.
