The amaryllis abulbous herbaceous flower of the genus hippeastrum shown here grows in the yard of Verlee and Joe Guilbeau on Darby Ave. The flower has clusters of unusally large showy lily-like red and pink blossoms. It is also popular as a houseplant. The plant family includes daffodils, snowdrops and onions and its relatives. Amaryllis is also the name of a shepherdess or country girl in classical poetry. It is still used as a female given name.
