Mythology has it that Amaryllis was a shepherd woman who loved another shepherd named Alteo. This man only loved flowers. He said that he would love the woman who brought him a blossoming plant and that’s when Amaryllis dressed up in white and stood at Alteo’s door every night for 30 nights. During these visits, she pierced her heart using a gold arrow. When Alteo opened the door on the 30th night, he found a red flower that came from the blood of Amaryllis’ heart.
it’s a flower of determination, radiant beauty as well as pride.
