From the unique shape of the bloom, it looks like one of the H. species not a "hybrid" cultivar.

Yes I think so to, that they looks more of a specie but I canīt find any to compare with :o)
It have a very beautyful color I think. Subdued but shimmer colour.

She say it was the same bulb. Or perhaps it can be a hybrid from this specie!

Hippeastrum are not the most beautiful garden plant, until they bloom. Not many people grow them here.

We say here they looks like "not well-kept grass" in the windowsill, untill they flower, but until they flower, I can keep them behind the curtain. I think it is av very grateful potplant in my windowsill, and in the fall I put them into my storage in my garage, and there they rest until next spring, without any care. They are superb.
