Amaryllis, a native South African plant, Latin amarysso meaning “to sparkle. What a perfect meaning for this time of year. I love these plants, every year I search for a new, variety to bloom in my house.
Over the years I have collected 19th century botanicals of these amazing plants, the detail in the drawings is what I love the most about them. In the day with no cameras, the fine detail all done with the naked eye.
