To the right is Amaryllis Chico,
the most spidery of all the cybister Amaryllis. If you prefer a more full flower, then you could try Amaryllis Bogota, pictured above.

Cybister Amaryllis
 are a group of amaryllis derived from a south America species. They are distinguished by their spidery flowers and recurved petals. The flowers are typically two toned in color.

Many people have a hard time believing that these exotic beauties are Amaryllis! However, they are not any more difficult to grow to regular Amaryllis bulbs.  

This group of amaryllis tends to be smaller-sized, with attractive bulbs no bigger than a small orange. They are perfect for a sunny windowsill.

Most of the hybrids in this group have only been available since the early 2000s, but several varieties are now available for purchase.
