The man on the picture is Bram van Staalduinen from the Dutch village Heenweg in Westland near The Hague. Raised in between the grapes, radishes and Amaryllises growing in the many greenhouses of his company. He has an enormous passion for Amaryllises and has been breeding new varieties since childhood.
Where most Amaryllis breeders are looking for bold colours Bram is looking for more sophisticated colours and less common flower shapes. Bram manages to breed romance into his Amaryllises.
