(aka: Hippeastrum advenum) Rhodophiala bifida is a delightful, easy-to-grow Argentine amaryllis relative and one of the most outstanding and durable bulbs for southeastern gardens. Multiplying steadily, Rhodophiala bifida remains evergreen through the winter, finally going dormant in late spring. Beginning in late summer or early fall, the 15" stalks arise from nowhere, each topped with a cluster of stunning, carmine-red, horizontally-facing, habranthus-like flowers...a superb garden surprise toward the end of the season! In 2011, a group of major bulb experts and growers voted to name the old Texas heirloom clone Rhodophiala bifida 'Hill Country Red'.
