Many times the label will say Picotee, when it is actually Picotee Picasso. Picotee has pure white petals with the red picotee thread around the edge of the petal. Picotee Picasso looks the same, except it tends to have a blush of tiny red spots on some or all of the petals. Both are pretty. Picotee seems to be a good breeder and will cross with itself, and many other hippeastrum. But I have never got it to cross with Butterfly Papilio, which is its own species. The seeds form in pods and are papery thin. It is often easiest to get the seeds to sprout by floating them in a bowl of water. Plant them after a root grows, or even wait until a root and then a leaf appears. Be prepared to wait quite a while for a flower though - it takes 3-5 years to get big enough to bloom.

Red edges on pure white blooms. In colder temperatures, grow indoors. Blooms 8-10 weeks. Very reliable bloomer.
