Amaryllis


One in the Greenhouse, one in the Garden. Amaryllis are easily forced in pots; in warm climates, they are almost fool-proof in the garden. These bloomed this week, and are a similar cultivar, identified only as 'Red.'

Another bulb that I forced was labeled as 'Pink' and bloomed a darker crimson red than these.

  1. Ah! I'm in love with this beauty! Wish I could grow that red variety too! Awesome photos! I fell for this color after seeing it over at Jan's (http://alwaysgrowing.wordpress.com/).

  2. Beautiful amaryllis, Nell. These days I have a few of them in bloom at Tuysonvien, too.

I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
