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

Must be years of hybridizing!
