    Sir, I know that it is a hippeastrum hybrid cultivar, but I am intrested in knowing its name. If it is not a named variety, then I have created it by random cross-pollination. I am not sure whether I bought it a few years ago or it grew from seed prepared by me.

    You can call it Bill or George or John, anything but Sue!!!!

    Do provide a bit more info about it. Is it deciduous or evergreen? When does it bloom?

    If you already know its a hybrid cultivar, then you must already know that its definitely not a species.

    It is deciduous and it flowers in late spring, that is, April in Pakistan.
