I am better with light bulbs than growing them but the other day at a cactus nursery this plant was in full bloom in their front yard.
Can anyone give an ID for it?
Thanks in advance for any help.

If it is the true species then it is Hippeastrum reticulatum v. striatifolium, but given that the stripes on the leaves appear a bit yellow in the pic it is more likely to be a hybrid (the true species has really white stripes, whereas the hybrids the stripe is yellowish). The most common hybrid would be Hippeastrum 'Mrs. Garfield'. A beauty regardless :D Dan

I would go with 'Mrs Garfield' as well. I love the line in the foliage in this bulb. I need to score one of these some day.
