Marrakech -  Creamy yellow with warm apricot highlights.  Said to survive severe cold winter conditions.

These sonitini amaryllis were developed for colder climates after a branch of the Barnhorn family returned to the Netherlands from South Africa.  They are field grown in a region better known for tulips and daffodils.  Although they are dug for the winter when grown commercially, it is claimed that they are cold hardy down to zone 6.  Please let us know your experiences with these new varieties so we can give more accurate information in the future.  In zones 7 and below, I recommend deep planting (up to 4 inches of soil above the bulb) and a thick winter mulch.

These bulbs are much smaller than standard amaryllis (some no larger than a golf ball).  We only have a few for the devoted collectors.
