Navigation

These exotic plants have the power to change the look of the gardens in spring. Their buds emerge fast from the base of the plants and, over a period of few days, they start flowering red, white and many other colours not depicted here. Their green, and often glossy leaves surround the thick hollow stems and enhance the cheerful beauty of the plants.

Caption List:

1. Red and white hippeastrum, Brisbane, Queensland. The pictured is one of the large flowering hybrids 'Coctail Queen' that produces four red and white flowers with a faint lime green throat. The strong upright foliage appears at the time of flowering.

2. Red & white hippeastrum, Gold Coast.

3. Hippeastrum, Gold Coast, Queensland. The brilliant red flower shares a sturdy, erect stem with the three others. Its satiny petals developed ahead of the green leaves just starting to shoot from the base of the plant.

4. Hippeastrum Papilio, Botanic Gardens, Brisbane. Native to Brazil this hippeastrum is named so because the lower pair of its petals look like the wings of a butterfly. My personal favourite among the species the pictured flower is in the shades of lime green with burgundy markings and veins.

5. Hippeastrum, Gold Coast, Queensland. The silky red petals of this medium size hippeastrum gleam in an early afternoon sun.
