This specie do look more like mini pineapple when it flowers!

這種類開花時更像是迷你的鳳梨!

Bulbous perennial native in South Africa.  It has unusual flowers and the flowers do look like small pineapple.   Not cold tolerant.  USDA Zones:8-10. Best to grow it in full sun to partial shade location.  The information on the package said it is 1′ tall but I read some other info said 1′-2′ in height.  Not sure who is right…   We’ll see.  It is summer blooming plant.   Easy to grow. Its bulb looks like some kind of Daffodil bulb.  Planting this could be nice change, since it is good for cut flower as well but I don’t think I will do that unless it multiply becomes many.  Propagation by seeds, off sets, corms/bulbs and rhizomes/tubers. This one has burgundy foliage and pink flowers.

原生於南非的球根花卉.  有著像是小鳳梨似的簇生小花,有點不一樣. 不耐寒.  全日照到半日照溫暖的環境生長為佳.  種球包資料說僅高1呎. 可是查到的資料有說可到2呎的.  反正等開花就知道是多高了.  夏天開花,容易栽種. 它的球根有點像是某種水仙的球根.  種這個試看看應該不錯,做做實驗也好.  繁殖以種子,球根,塊根,側球或子球等方式. 這個種有著紅葉及粉紅色花.

This double Amaryllis is tender perennial flowering bulb.  USDA Zones: 9-11.  It is very easy to grow indoor from large bulb, its triple petaled flower has luxury look.  Sometimes flower forms even many layers of petals.   Excellent for cut flower! 重瓣的孤挺花並不耐寒,但是它是很容易栽種的多年生球根花卉.  三倍體的花朵有時花瓣會更多層,很華麗璀璨!  是上選的切花花材! After flowering the plant will grow wide, slender leaves.  You can propagate the plant by slicing the bulb as an orange, just remember to sanitize the sharp knife and make sure each slice with a bit of root base.   When weather is warm you should plant the bulb outdoors for bulbs to grow larger. 花謝後剪去花莖,它會長出長長寬寬的綠葉.  可以像切柳橙一樣的方式來繁殖球根.  不過利刃要消毒,要確定每塊都帶有能長根的根部. 陰乾傷口就能種植.  天氣溫暖時可以將植株地植或戶外栽種在大盆中,讓球根可以長大.  最好是全日照或半日照處,排水良好的土壤.
