Description

Looking as fresh as a daisy in gleaming white, Hippeastrum 'Akiko' will add a note of elegance to your home. Folds of luxurious white petals envelop these huge, double blooms, instantly lighting up any room they grace. Probably one of the easiest Amaryllis to match to your interior decoration, you won’t have any trouble placing this gorgeous bloom. Hippeastrum 'Akiko' will look spectacular against almost any colour backdrop, standing out brilliantly against bright shades and yet also blending harmoniously with neutral tones. With its multiple flowers standing atop tall, sturdy stems, it creates a fabulous focal point and gives an uplifting boost during those dull, grey winter days when light levels are low.  

If you yearn for flower power in the dead of winter, Hippeastrum 'Akiko' creates a very simple way to achieve that. These luxurious and long-lasting flowers are surprisingly easy to grow, with that huge bulb providing all the magic growth that’s required. All you need to do is pot it up in a free-draining compost mix, leaving the top third of the Hippeastrum 'Akiko' bulb visible, and place it in a bright and warm spot, watering occasionally. At least one flower stalk will emerge several weeks later. There couldn’t be an easier way to energise your home with fresh floral power during the darker days of the year!
