Dave- I don't always enlarge the thumbnails due to my dodgy internet connection, but this one was well worth it- very elegant flower!

Michael- there's some patience, and well rewarded, looks like :)

Congratulations, Michael!  I am not really familiar with either of the parents.  How does the child stack up, regarding the display of parental characteristics?

The flower is the same shape as Cytranthus and the flower stem the same height, but the bulbs resemble Amaryllis. The anthers have a different shape and number and flower colour is different.
