Hippeastrums are big, bold, voluptuous and brassy and their strong colours work particularly well in our bright Australian light. Wild species grow in South America, but the varieties sold today are the result of years of intensive hybridising. Blooms are now large, flared trumpets in a dazzling range of colours. Plant hippies in clumps, en masse or in pots and you'll be rewarded with a flamboyant display that will bring cheer and happiness to your garden.
