Gervase, Gervasius

Here is my latest blooms of the hippeastrum variety named, H. 'Gervase.' I looked up the name and it is a form of Gervasius, who was a Saint from Milan. It roughly means "the spear," which seems odd at first until you see the blooms of this bulb. They pierce the visual acuity for sure.
