Talking about Butterfly Amaryllis (Hippeastrum papilio), DogsNDaylilies wrote:

Papilio is a FAST bloomer...I received mine as an unpotted bulb and I potted it the last week of December. By the last week of January, it was blooming!

Edited to add: Careful where you place this, it can produce a decent amount of very sticky nectar.

A huge, flat-faced, true-peach colored flower. Sparkles in the sunlight. This is the nicest peach colored Hippeastrum to come along in a long time.

Talking about Amaryllis (Hippeastrum 'Elvas'), mcash70 wrote:

I added ‘Elvas’ to my Amaryllis collection this fall and it sure did not disappoint. It produced two tall, sturdy, 20-inch stems; each stem held 5 large buds, with each bud producing a beautiful double white bloom with raspberry-pink markings and a picotee edge. The blooms were very large at 8 to 9 inches. The blooms had no fragrance that I could detect, but the huge blooms themselves were absolutely stunning! I highly recommend this amaryllis.

Talking about Amaryllis (Hippeastrum 'Blossom Peacock'), critterologist wrote:

I've been growing amaryllises since we moved to Frederick, and of the dozens of varieties I've had, 'Blossom Peacock' is still my hands-down favorite. The color and shape of the bloom are just exquisite. I think my neighbor pinned it down for me when she commented, "It's like a beautiful water lily!" It has all the "extras" -- double petal count, picotee edges, white "star" formed by central stripes on the pink-streaked petals. Some even say it's fragrant, although any fragrance seems very faint to me. Relatively small bulbs will put up multiple bloom stalks. Like most doubles, it doesn't set seed readily, and it's been at best a modest increaser for me.

Talking about Amaryllis (Hippeastrum 'Tinkerbell'), critterologist wrote:

This was my first year growing 'Tinkerbell,' and I'm in love with her! Blooms are slightly trumpet-shaped, with a ruffled picoteed edge. Color is more pink than peach, to my relief, as I'm not a fan of peachy tones. Miniature, so stems and blooms are smaller than some varieties. No staking needed, even with 6 to 8 blooms per stem! I put 3 bulbs in a pot and got blooms for weeks. Highly recommended. I got mine from ADR Bulbs.
