I get to know the name of this gorgeous Hippeastrum as “Mrs Garfield” through Mr. Google. Thanks to him.
'Mrs. Garfield'? ? The name is really weird! The flower definitely does not look like the Garfield cat at all right?
Hippeastrum 'Mrs. Garfield' has been a favourite of mine, the bloom is so lovely. The soft white 6 petals flower looks like a star, and elegantly reticulated with pink veins.
Hippeastrum 'Mrs. Garfield' is easy to be recognised through it broad leaves centred with a white stripe down the middle of each leaf.
This type of hippeastrum is pretty common in Malaysia. Mr. Google said it has been existence in UK since 18th century. Wow!
I planted the bulb on July 2015 & it bloom 3 months later. So soon and I didn’t expect the bloom. It really surprised me!
