Amaryllis Papilio Butterfly

Exotic Amaryllis Papilio | The Butterfly Amaryllis 

Papilio, French for "butterfly", produces flowers that actually appear capable of fluttering away. The most famous of the exotic amaryllis, papilio makes an amazing houseplant, growing larger as the seasons pass with the addition of smaller side bulbs. Snowy petals with maroon brushings and stripes, tinged with lime green. Flowers are 6" across and numerous. Truly a winged wonder and the variety that requires the most patience as it's easy but not speedy.

*This variety can be a study in patience, sometimes not blooming for even six months after first forming foliage. papilio is exquisite, and best suited for those who will cherish its unique beauty when it deigns to flower.* Enjoy!
