Pictures of Hippeastrum hybrids, often described as amaryllis and seen for sale in the northern hemisphere in December, are pictured on this page. Photos of plants with names from O-unnamed are found on this page.
Photos of other hybrids are found on these pages:
Hippeastrum index lists all the species and hybrids by name.
Hippeastrum 'Opal Star' is a medium sized Israeli hybrid; the flowers measure about 5 in. across. Photo taken December 2010 by Joshua Young.
Hippeastrum 'Orange Sovereign' - Photo taken November 2019 by Linda Foulis. My favorite Hippeastrum hybrid. Reliable rebloomer, flowers are almost 6" across, rich vibrant orange."
Hippeastrum 'Red Peacock' Photo taken April 2004 by Lee Poulsen.
Hippeastrum 'Shoka no Midorisagi' (=green heron in the early summer) is a hybrid produced by the Japanese nursery Komoriya. Photograph by Mari Kitama. See this PBS list thread for more about Japanese hippeastrums.
Hippeastrum 'Snow White' from Greg Pettit in South Africa, grown and photographed by Arnold Trachtenberg
Hippeastrum teyucuarense × Hippeastrum angustifolium photo was taken by Dell Sherk, March 2006.
Hippeastrum 'Yume Mitai' Photo taken March 2004 by Lee Poulsen. A Japanese hybrid whose name means 'Looks Like a Dream'. Does anyone have a guess as to which species they may have crossed to get this?
Below are pictured some unnamed hybrids. The first two photos show a hybrid double pink bred and photographed by Ronald Redding. The third from Arnold Trachtenberg was probably given to him by a neighbor who didn't know how to reflower the bulb. The fourth from Joshua Young is of an unnamed hybrid received from a woman living in Florida that she said she has had for ten years or longer! It's a plant with small stature that blooms from small bulbs.
Angelo Porcelli placed the photos of the three plants below on the Mystery bulbs page, but they have not been identified. They are most likely hybrids. He found these three hybrids/species here and there in some gardens in south Italy. They are labeled 2, 3, and 4. Number 2 is a strong plant, found originally in a clump of over 30 bulbs. Leaves have a typical bluish cast and flowers have a 'triangular' face, about 12 cm across (5"). Number 3 has tall stalks and he wondered it if could be Hippeastrum vittatum or a hybrid of the same. Number 4 has a well visible dark red 'eye' and often flowers again in September. It stays evergreen, in spite of being routinely exposed to frosts at -2 °C and has rather leathery leaves.
A cross between a white tetraploid Hippeastrum × H. papilio produced these vigorously growing Hippeastrum seedlings photographed by Allan Ladd. Many of the seedlings were distinctly green in flower color. Most seedlings had 4 to 8 flowers per stem.
Bulbs are often sold as Christmas presents under the name "Amaryllis" dry in a cardboard box containing soil and a pot, with instructions to water at the start of the New Year and keep indoors. Photographs by David Pilling of one such bulb, the first is on a 10 mm grid; they are taken at roughly one week intervals (hover over them to see the dates) and are in time order.
