My amaryllis which was labeled Elvas is in bloom. I is a GORGEOUS blossom but has more makings than the ones on the data base and the one I had a few years ago, What do you think....what might it be?

Hmmm, possibly Candy Cane? Amaryllis (Hippeastrum 'Candy Cane')

Or maybe Peach or Apricot Parfait?

Looking on an internet search I think it looks like Dancing Queen. Some of the pictures of Candy Cane are single while others are double and don't resemble the one photo on the NGA data base.

Looks very similar to my own photo of Dancing Queen.
