This offering represents flowering-sized plants grown from PDN seed, from an original 2001 Buenos Aires area collection by Alberto Castillo. We have found these to be very similar to Rhodophiala bifida var. spathacea, but with origin data. Starting in late August and continuing through September, the leafless flower stalks of this drought-tolerant hippeastrum relative rise to 15" and are topped with a cluster of carmine-pink outfacing flowers. After the flowers fade, 18" long glossy green leaves emerge and remain through the winter months. Rhodophiala bifida is very easy to grow and looks superb both as a specimen or when used in a mass planting.
