Hippeastrum Blossom Pink
Hippeastrum Blossom Pink £9.95
Absolutely incredible – an Amaryllis flower with not one not two but three layers of petals! Blooms are more upward facing than is usual for an Amaryllis so you can more easily appreciate their beauty and whats more they have a midly sweet fragrance.

Hippeastrum Picotee
Hippeastrum Picotee £9.95
Sometimes called Amaryllis and belonging to the same family Hippeastrums which originate from South America are actually of a different genus.Picotee is a beautiful Hippeastrum with a delicate red edge on elegant white flowers.We offer large bulbs which will produce two and sometimes three flower stems with four to six flowers per stem.
Anemone nemorosa Robinsoniana
Anemone nemorosa Robinsoniana £8.95
A very strong and beautiful form of the ‘Wood Anemone’.  The deeply cut foliage shows off the attractive lavender-blue flowers which are a little bigger than the true species to perfection. Great for naturalizing in dappled shade..  
Hippeastrum Prelude
Hippeastrum Prelude £8.95
Whether you call them by their popular but botanically incorrect name ‘Amaryllis’ – which is actually a different genus – or by their correct name Hippeastrum doesn’t really matter. Blooms are strikingly marked with contrasting white edges veins and centres.
