Description

You love planting flowers that are distinctively different, but you also love the classic fire of red hippeastrums. Now you can get the best of both worlds with Amaryllis 'Red Peacock', a fiery beauty that features a double row of petals and a white, pinstripe highlight down the centre of each petal. Hippeastrum 'Red Peacock' will never be “just another” red amaryllis. Instead, it struts its stuff as proudly as any peacock, but without the distressing noise that peacocks make!

Surely one of the finest choices to force for festive Christmas blooms, Amaryllis 'Red Peacock' also makes a wonderful patio or garden plant when planted in the springtime. Take care of your bulbs, and you will get flowers for years to come.
