    I have also always been under the impression that these bulbs are Amaryllis, but I checked with Wikipedia and discovered that although these bulbs are from the Amaryllidaceae family, they are actually a different genus, Hippeastrum, “popularly but erroneously known as Amaryllis”. There are only two species in the genus Amaryllis, both of them indigenous to South Africa. The Hippeastrums, of which there are about 90 species, are native to the more tropical parts of the Americas.
