Colours of Hippeastrum Flowers

Stock Images By Christina Jablonski

My interest in hippeastrum started a while ago when a kind stranger gave me some bulbs. This year I had a fascinating display of colour in my garden and began to take notice of hippeastrum growing in other places. A popular but somewhat inaccurate name for these flowers is amaryllis. The photographs here are suitable for calendars, postcards, gardening brochures, magazines

Photo Information for Colours of Hippeastrum Flowers

Photo 1. Hippeastrum Papilio, Botanic Gardens, Brisbane Native to Brazil this hippeastrum is named so because the lower pair of its petals look like the wings of a butterfly. My personal favourite among the species the pictured flower is in the shades of lime green with burgundy markings and veins.

Photo 2. Hippeastrum 'Elaine Rose', Woombye, QLD The Maguire's Hippeastrum Farm, Woombye, Sunshine Coast, Queensland

Photo 3. White Hippeastrum, Woombye, QLD The 'Envious Lady' hippeastrum, Maguire's Hippeastrum Farm, Woombye, Sunshine Coast, Qld

Photo 4. Capsicum-red hippeastrum, Gold Coast, Australia The satin smooth flowers are clustered on the green-pink-brown stalks while their smaller neighbours negotiate a way towards the sun.

Photo 5. Hippeastrum, Gold Coast, Australia The sunlight touches a jewel-like flower growing under the bush. Its blood red petals hide inside a pale soft throat. The shiny leaves are trying to reach the height of this new bloom.

Photo 6. Hippeastrum, Gold Coast, Queensland The silky red petals of this medium size hippeastrum gleam in an early afternoon sun.

Photo 8. Red and white hippeastrum, Queensland This photograph was taken at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens.

Photo 9. Hippeastrum, Gold Coast, Queensland Red is the most popular colour among hippeastrum flowers. Here the colour of their velvety petals edged with the white line seem even more dramatic when photographed against the bright sky. The name of this hippeastrum is unknown.

Photo 10. Hippeastrum 'Magic Green', Gold Coast, Australia A shape and colours of this flower attract the eyes of a passer by. It grew beneath the silver smooth trunks of the two gum trees.

Photo 11. Hippeastrum 'Coctail', Brisbane, Queensland Hidden in the grasses the flowers are carried on a tall stalk. They have a white central stripe, delicate red petals and the lime green centre.

Photo 13. Orange flowering hippeastrum, Gold Coast, Australia These beautiful flowers are orange-red and their throats open with yellow. Growing in masses they make cheerful sunny patches in the garden. This is possibly a H. striatum.

Photo 14. Hippeastrum 'United Nations', Gold Coast, Australia The light of the day reveals a fresh new flower with its red-white stripes and pale green throat. Delicate veins make the flower appear softer.

Photo 15. Orange hippeastrum, Gold Coast, Australia Possibly a striatum or petiolatum this is a smaller hybrid of hippeastrum. It produces masses of delightful orange flowers on the slender stems.

Photo 16. Hippeastrum, Gold Coast, Australia

Photo 17. Hippeastrum, Gold Coast, Australia A photo of this stunning plant was taken early in the morning. The sunlight made its colours softer and their delicate petals almost translucent.

Photo 18. Hippeastrun seed pods, Queensland The straw coloured pods contain many flat black seeds packed in the three chambers (locule). When the pods totally open or the wind comes the light seeds will disperse in the garden.

Photo 19. Red and white hippeastrum, Brisbane, Queensland The pictured is one of the large flowering hybrids 'Coctail Queen' that produces four red and white flowers with a faint lime green throat. The strong upright foliage appears at the time of flowering.

Photo 20. Hippeastrum Papilio, Brisbane, QLD Native to Brazil this hippeastrum is named so because the lower pair of its petals look like the wings of a butterfly. A personal favourite among the species the pictured flower is in the shades of lime green with burgundy markings and veins.
