Hardy Amaryllis Bulb




South Africa


Hippeastrum x johnsonii is a hybrid between H. reginae and H. vittatum. The hardy amaryllis grows 18-24 inches tall with four to six blooms produced on a stout, hollow scape that pushes from the bulb. Individual flowers are to 5 inches across, slightly fragrant and bright red with a central white stripe down the center. Blooms usually appear in late spring. 

Leaves are to 2 inches wide, to 2 feet long and bronze colored when grown in the sun.The bulbs are smaller than the typical forcing amaryllis but increase quickly, resulting in a colony of plants if left undisturbed for a number of years. 


    Hippeastrum Lily plant is happiest when it is getting plenty of sunshine and warmth. Make sure to place it either beside a sunny window or on the outdoors. The way it reflects sunlight makes it more attractive in its natural state.

    Make sure that the soil maintains a level of dryness throughout its life. When planting use a fast-draining soil for your Hippeastrum Lilly and keep in mind not to let excess water hang around for long, especially around the roots. Otherwise, the true beauty of this plant will not be realized. The bulbs may rot and the flowers may appear to be unhealthy, or it might not even show up at all.

    Landscape Use

    Amaryllis can be used effectively as foundation plantings to make a pleasing contrast to nearby evergreen shrubbery. Other uses for amaryllis include mass plantings, in tree islands, on slopes, near a gate entrance or in borders.

    Flowering plants need access to bright sunlight to remain healthy and blooming. An easy facing balcony is the best place for the plants in Indian conditions. Try keeping them in bright sunlight but also where they get a little cover from the harsh afternoon sun. Some plants which are a little tender tend to burn due to the same.

    Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.

    Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
