One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

This is not your grandmother's Amaryllis (it's a Hippeastrum)
This tag suggests it was in the Director's office when Dr. Elias was here. In 2004 the Arboretum staged a huge Amaryllis show. I'm sure this plant is a survivor of that show. I'll have to ask George (Waters) about it because he's Mr. Hippeastrum and knows all things Amaryllis.
