The Garden Magazine, May, 1923
Two noteworthy novelties were shown, the most striking individual display in the show being a curiously luminous pink-scarlet Hippeastrum from John Lewis Childs, Inc., set against a background of black velvet. It fairly fired its corner of the [New York Flower] Show. Exhibited as "Everblooming Amaryllis," it is so called because of its family habit of flowering twice a year and of making its first display even from a small bulb in a two-inch pot.
