We are pleased to offer this rare man-made bigeneric hybrid from Mr. Udai Pradhan of India. This '70s cross of Hippeastrum (amaryllis) x Sprekelia formosissima (Aztec lily) resulted in a perfect intermediate between the two plants. H. 'Durga Pradhan' makes a large clump, as it offsets quite readily. In midspring (April-May), the clumps of narrow amaryllis-like foliage are topped with the 1' tall stalks of crimson-red sprekelia-shaped flowers.
