Amaryllis Hybrid Flower - "Glee" by Daniel Arrhakis (2017) Amaryllis hybrid flower and rosemary. The variety is "Glee" developed by Saad-Assaf circa 2014. A large flowered and striking H. papilio derived selection that successfully marries the coloration of that species with the classic open faced form of modern hybrids. The buds are beautifully patterned in green and red, lending an air of drama just before the flowers pop open. The deep burgundy red at the center fans outward and brightens a shade over the pointed, silken picotee edged tepals. The lower third is predominantly white, with a bit of diamond dusted sparkle in angled light. More than four flowers per scape. Thus Amaryllis L. is the correct name for the South African genus, not the South American genus (Hippeastrum). Originally from tropical lands like the Caribbean, South Africa or islands in the South Seas, amaryllis can be found all over the world, except in Antarctica. Grown from bulbs, each plant produces from two to five flowers which stay in bloom for about six weeks. The Greeks called these beautiful flowers Amarullis, which means “splendor” or “sparkling.” The word seems to come from a character in a popular poem by Virgil. The nymph Amaryllis had a dramatic way of declaring her love for a gardener named Alteo. She pierced her heart with a golden arrow at his door every day for one month. That’s why amaryillis flowers are often a deep red. Unfortunately, the gardener was unimpressed with Amaryillis’s bloodlettings and ignored her. The Romans, who often spoke Greek for informal occasions, borrowed the Greek word and turned into the Latin Amaryllis. Color symbolism for the amaryllis can also be applied to many other flowers: Red: Means passion, love and beauty. In China, red is a lucky color. Purple: Purple symbolizes not only royalty, but the spiritual side of life. Orange: Means good health and happiness. White: Means purity, femininity, children and innocence but also symbolize mourning for a loved one. Pink: Means Love and friendship for both genders and for people of all ages. Yellow: They are a symbol for happiness, luck and good times ahead. _______________________________________________ In Portugal we called these type of flowers Açucenas.
