A starting-point when I write a description is that I do not talk about the colour of the flower. After all I use colour pictures and describing the colour as well is not really helpful for the interested customer. But with Amarantia I’m going to break this rule because it was her colour that made me decide to add her my Amaryllis assortment. Amarantia is so delicate, intense deep red and this colour in combination with her dark bluish green foliage is breath taking. It also looks like her red colour originates from a shade of blue somewhere hidden in between the many petals. But besides all this Amarantia is just a great and easy variety to grow; floriferous, sturdy and with amazingly well shaped flowers.
