Hippeastrum        Amaryllidaceae
Bulbs of Central
and
South America
Rhodophiala        Amaryllidaceae
Hippeastrum mandoni
The spectacular hybrids offered by the horticultural trade are commonly known as Amaryllis, but truly belong to the genus
Hippeastrum, the members of which are all native to South America.  The species Hippeastrum are rarely available, and can be just as
exciting as their more exotic cousins.  They are usually summer-growers, and would need the protection of a greenhouse in cold winter
climates.  Most flower in winter or early spring, and many can be successfully grown as house plants.  The bulbs listed below are all
flowering size, and are shipped with roots intact. SHIPS YEAR ROUND.   For a posting on this subject see:
 
www.thebulbmaven.typepad.com
Very closely related to Hippeastrum, the Rhodophialas are generally smaller and
daintier in appearance, and they are also hardier.  Native to the Andes mountains of
Chile and Argentina, they are largely winter-growers, going dormant in summer and
producing their flowers before the leaves come up in late summer.  SHIPS YEAR
