The scoop on Amaryllis Rilona

Sometime bigger really is better. Meet Rilona. As one of the very few heirloom amaryllis still being commercially grown, this huge, apricot orange beauty blooms with creped petal that sweep back, opening the flowers wide. Hard to capture with a camera but easy to see with the eye, Rilona's petals sparkle with a silky texture that elevates this amaryllis to something quite special.
