Belladonna Lily 'Hathor' (3 Bulbs)
Originally released in Australia in the 1930s, and sold as Brunsvigia multiflora 'Hathor' (according to the Pacific Bulb Society), this bulb was renamed to Amaryllis belladonna 'Hathor' in the 1950s. Bred by HHB Bradley around 1905 at his home on Sydney's North Shore, where the bridge off ramps now stand, with plants from this original collection still flowering in the Sydney Botanical Gardens.
Bulbs from the Amayllidaceae family (Belladonna, Nerines and Blood Lily) have evolved to adapt and thrive in climates with dry summers. These bulbs rest over the summer period and flower in time for the later rain in Autumn. Bulbs will often then form leaves after the blooming without foliage to generate energy for next years growth. Bulbs will benefit from a liquid feed once the foliage emerges.
