Amaryllis Bulb In Bloom

Amaryllis is the common name for flowers of the genus Hippeastrum.

The amaryllis commonly means determination, beauty, and love.
The Victorians associated amaryllis with strength and determination because of their height and sturdiness.
Amaryllis can also mean success, and are commonly given as gifts of hard-won achievement.
Amaryllis is a Greek female name that means “to sparkle”
Certain species of Hippeastrum are high in alkaloids, specifically isoquinoline alkaloids. Alkaloids are organic compounds that have physiological effects on humans, so they are beneficial for creating medicines. Hippeastrum alkaloids help with depression, seizures, and anxiety.
