Do you want to know some fun trivia about Amaryllis? This type of flower is native to the tropical regions of South Africa and present in different colors such as pink, red, white, orange, and other various bi-colors. In Greek Mythology, a shy maiden named Amaryllis deeply fell in love with Alteo, a shepherd with Apollo’s beauty and Hercules’ strength, but her affection was not reciprocated as Alteo only loved flowers. According to him, he would only love a girl who bought him a new flower. Amaryllis sought advice from the oracle of Delphi in hopes to win his heart over by offering and giving him the thing he desired the most – a flower that had never been seen anywhere else and like no other. Following his instructions, Amaryllis made her way to Alteo’s door for 30 nights dressed in maiden’s white, each time piercing her heart with a golden arrow. At last, upon opening his door, he noticed a striking flower sprung from the blood of Amaryllis’ heart.
