Actually, I bought the bulbs, three of them, several years ago at Home Depot. They were labeled "Pink Garden Amaryllis."

I've been calling them Apple Blossom, because I assumed that is what they were.
Big box stores often sell crosses as named varieties with anything grown from bulbs or rhizomes. I've gotten irises before that were similar to what I was looking for but we're smaller and didn't have the blooms I was expecting. They buy them from discount vendors and sell them eve though they know there's little chance they are what the labels claim.

Blooming right on time for outdoor amaryllis, around Easter. These are Tinkerbell.

One of my mom’s Amaryllis patches. She says these multiply.
