Oh hello 👋🏼 didn’t know you were flowering! First time since I bought it in 2018. It’s hidden upstairs and I’d forgotten all about it... #hippeastrum #hippeastrumpapilio #hippeastrum-papilio #butterflyhippeastrum #butterflyamaryllis

I love the markings on it Sarah. It’s strangely quite narrow too. You’d think I had squashed the photo but it really is a very narrow flower. I wonder if it still needs a few days to open fully 🤔 @sieveheadsarah

There are quite a few different types Richard, some with really narrow petals, I really like the one called Sumatra, well all the narrow ones to be honest. https://www.easytogrowbulbs.com/collections/amaryllis?page=1

Adding to plant list - Hippeastrum papilio, species. Another bulb 😆 - not sure if this one is evergreen and when it will flower. Most of the ones I’m familiar with flower indoors over winter but this one might be different. I really should have read up a bit before I clicked the ‘buy’ button 😉🤣 #hippeastrum #hippeastrum-papilio #hippeastrumpapilio #butterflyhippeastrum #butterflyamaryllis
