A long-time resident in our garden, the white hippeastrum is a firm favourite.
We started off with peach colored hippeastrums, then pink and red ones. They were a motley crew; each beautiful in its own way.
Happily I gave away most of the other bulbs in my attempt to make room for the white ones.
Yes, I know. It’s unfair to play favourites, but the purity of the white was awesome.
Now, while the whites bloom and enjoy their elevated status, the rest seem to have forgotten how to. I think they are sulking.
If I never believed plants had feelings, I do now. I wonder if talking to them would help? I guess I could try.
Care and propagation: Full sun, well drained soil. Water moderately. Propagate by dividing bulbs.
