Caption: Flowering stem of "Apple Blossom" a hybrid Hippeastrum, commonly known as Amaryllis. The picture shows flower buds about to open; they are arranged in an umbel ( on stalks that arise all at the same level, like the spokes of an umbrella). The petals are shades of pink; the green leaf-like structures, here clasping each flower, are bracts. Hippeastrum is a genus that is native to Central and South America, and is a member of the family Amaryllidaceae. Amaryllis is correctly the name of a separate genus of the same family that is native to South Africa
