Hippeastrum aulicum x calyptratum

Wm. "Bill" Morris's fall-blooming hybrid of aulicum x calyptratum. As you can see, it is mostly green with a brushing or light orange. This plant always blooms in autumn after a leafless summer dormancy, a trait shared by both parents. Also note that the calyptratum shape of the flowers is a co-dominate trait and is diluted in this F1 hybrid. I have a hard time getting a picture that showed the two upper petal segs recurving inward. I have other pictures, but guess this one is representative. Since this hybrid is a fall bloomer, it should or will be a good parent (it has never made seeds for me) for crossing with other fall or late summer bloomers. (BC)
