Hippeastrum (Amaryllis) have gone down a storm and have been a really popular revelation to many. It's taken me far too long to choose this week's type and colour: there are so many to chose from at the market. I have resisted the festive colours just yet (as we're still in November) and chosen St Pink Rival and St Dance Valley which is more unusual with more pointed petals. Both I think are super and like previous weeks these subtly showy, bold flowers come simply as 3 stems, with each stem producing 4 large flowers. It's a beautiful journey for the eyes! They will be accompanied by wax flower (another good lasting flower/foliage) and eucalyptus baby blue.
These flowers will see you our of lockdown, slowly opening and then blooming gracefully. They are well known for their superior longevity.
