Midge,
Unfortunately I do not know the names because the plants were here when I purchased the house a few years ago.

I have not bothered to find out if they are of a registered named specie because I have a very controversial belief which is, if I know the Family, Genus and Species I do not care if it is a named variety because the most important thing about the plant to me is its beauty i.e. my Hippeastrum Green Dragon is only an identifier of the bulb to me.  I hope that makes sense.  ;)
