Description

Not all Amaryllis varieties are known for their subtlety, so be prepared to be bowled over by the elegant grace of Hippeastrum 'Lemon Cream'. This sophisticated beauty is sure to charm all who cross her path, with her stunning large trumpet-shaped flowers in vintage shades of creamy white fading to olive-green throats. The petals are tastefully edged in a fine wavy line of rosy red, which frames this bloom to perfection.  

Even before this beautiful bulb comes into flower, the emerging unopened flower buds of Hippeastrum 'Lemon Cream'. look gorgeous in their subtle rose-red and olive green colours. This Amaryllis will produce one or two flowering stems in succession, ensuring several weeks of beautiful blooms. Like other hippeastrums, 'Lemon Cream'. is native to South and Central America, and is not frost hardy, so is best grown indoors. By potting up the bulb into a free-draining compost mix in autumn, the bulb will be ready to begin flowering in winter, and can be kept to flower again year after year. And once you grow the exquisite Hippeastrum 'Lemon Cream'., you won’t want to be without her!
