Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) Papillio


Delivery: From end August

Creamy-white petals marked and striped burgundy-red with a small green throat the reverse of the petals are touched with green.  Amaryllis Hippeastrum Papillio is also known as Butterfly Amaryllis due to their graceful exotic flowers, each flower has pointed flowers with long protruding anthers; which give the appearance of butterfly wings, it is shorter than most other amaryllis. 

This stunning variety of Hippeastrum is semi evergreen and prefers a semi shaded place indoors where the sun can not scorch the leaves as this can pertinently damage it. A good long lasting variety that with the correct care will give you years of pleasure.
