Always looking for new amaryllis to brighten windowsills, thrill friends and share as nice little love-having-you-in-our-lives gifts, we were delighted to find this new variety, Princess Claire. This sparkly gem blooms in white to barely blush pink with exquisitely penciled accents in rosy red. Introduced in 2016 and named in honor of Princess Claire of Belgium, these large flowers display a bright green heart, a sturdy outward facing form and a substantial crepe petal texture. Elegant!
This is a Leafari staff tested and recommended variety. As an interesting side note, in our trials Princess Claire was much more likley than other amaryllis to produce more than four blooms per stem. One of our plants delivered seven flowers on a single stalk!
