Hippeastrum to You

16 Jan

Hippeastrum is a genus of about 70-75 species and 600+ hybrids and cultivars of bulbous plants in the family Amaryllidaceae, native to tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas from Argentina north to Mexico and the Caribbean. Some species are grown for their large showy flowers. These plants are popularly but erroneously known as Amaryllis, an African genus in the same family.

I create my own banners and I’ve fooled around with digital art for many years, using flowers from my garden. Here’s another cheery specimen to brighten a chilly winter day and remind us that spring is on it’s way.

Digg!
