red lily


When I was in Singapore, I grew these red Lilies. Our apartments in the university campus had no fence. I placed my pots of lilies along the foot path. When they were in bloom, people came to admire them. I not only became the gardener (sadly unpaid)of NTU, I became an "expert" of growing a temperate lily in tropical Singapore.

The popular amaryllis seen in grocery stores and blooming around Christmas is most likely a Hippeastrum.
