A large Double Amaryllis that is pale pink to a rose color. One of the prettier ones when you factor in the soft green throat.

Our first year for growing 'Rozetta', and it's quite a stunner. Beautiful rose pink double blossoms with white highlights. An elegant departure from the more common holiday red amaryllis.

Fully double, Symphony type. Upward facing. Short, stout stems. Good foliage at flowering time. High bloom count. 26 days to bloom. Introduced by Hydeco of South Africa.
