Hippeastrum 'Red Lion' These South African natives have been cultivated for several hundred years. They are ideal plants for beginners. The huge bulbs produce stems that grow rapidly to 24", creating as many as 5 glorious flowers each. Indoors, they will bloom in time for Christmas if started by mid-October. They make a big hit as holiday gifts for friends or neighbors.
Outdoors, in Zones 8-11, they bloom in May. With proper care, potted or outdoor bulbs will bloom for years. 26-28 cm. One bulb.
Kit Includes: Flower Bulb, Container, & Soil Mix
Available to ship in early October.
I love this as a gift. They are easy to grow and bloom reliably. It's so much fun to watch them grow and the flowers last quite a while.Review by Stephanie (on 2/3/14)
