Only a few available of this lavendar-pink amaryllis clone.
These were grown along the central California coast, so please keep in mind that growing conditions can effect flower color.  They may need some shade in hot climates.  The ideal spot would have shade on the south, so that the leaves get more sunshine during the winter than the flowers get in the fall.  Afternoon shade could work well in hot climates.  These are the result of a century long hybridizing process.  I am continuing the work of Bill Welch, who hybridized and selected these for 40 years.  He got his start from Les Hannibal, who had worked with them at least that long.  Possibly there were some brunsvigia genetics involved originally.
