Hippeastrum  'Mrs. Garfield'
Zoom In Photo:

'Mrs. Garfield' is a famous heritage amaryllis hybrid produced in the UK around the 1880's. This rare collector's amaryllis has wide strap-like leaves centred with a bold white stripe. Its handsome trumpet flowers are soft white and elegantly reticulated with rose veins. Unlike the modern hybrids, this fabulous heirloom maintains evergreen foliage and regularly blooms each year in autumn, especially as the roots become more restricted.
