Amaryllis belongs to the family of Amaryllidaceae and is actually called Hippeastrum. Amaryllis and Hippeastrum are two closely related genera and are often confused. The biggest difference is in the stem. Amaryllis has a solid stem and Hippeastrum a hollow stem. Hippeus means knight and Astrum star, hence the Dutch name Ridderster.
Hippeastrum is now available in many types and colors. This was mainly used only red and pink, now almost every color imaginable. Hybrid, double-flowered, small flowered, floral and butterfly multiflora types in recent years has become available in a wide range.
