Breeding amaryllis

The breeding of Amaryllis has at N.L. van Geest B.V. a long history. The company has been active from an Amaryllis breeding collective since 1981 and was obtained over Splash®, Ferrari® and the Multiflora series, among others.

In 2002 the breeding was by N.L. Van Geest completely taken into their own hands from the course aimed at an assortment with exclusive Amaryllissen. This has led to, for example, the price -winning types of Spartacus®, Yellow Star®, Evergreen® and the double -flowered Amadeus series.
