What a beautiful bright pink color! Many that I have seen are dull pink but these blooms are truly exquisite.

They really stand out! This group are blooming very late this year. The flowers darken to a solid pink with age. Here's a photo from today where you can see that the white and yellow throat has turned pink and the stripes have all but disappeared. I think these may be some of Les Hannibal's hybrids. He lived here in Sacramento where he hybridized Amarylis, x Amarcrinum and x Amarygia.
