Now I know that Monrovia grows Amaryllis. I am curious to know why it is sold as a perennial for a garden in New York, since it would have to come in during the winter. I don't recognize the name Pink Rascal. It could be a Monrovia name for a generic pink. Still its very pretty.

Well your post got me interested in Monrovia and cold hardiness. I went to the Monrovia website and typed in Amaryllis. The site is currently listing H. lollypop and H. ballentino. Monrovia claims that both are hardy in zone 7. I'm impressed! Thumbs up

I have the Alaska Sonatini Amaryllis an all white Sonatini type. All the Sonatini type are hardy to 7A and there are more and more varieties getting released every year and I'd love to grow them all Lovey dubby . The future looks bright for people wanting to grow Amaryllis outside in a colder climate than typical Amaryllis do. Hurray!

Royal Colors usually sells Sonatini cultivars after Xmas. They aren't available in their early fall catalog.
