Not fully open; I can never wait.
See the blue pot behind? There are five pots of Epiphyllum oxypetalum back there on a makeshift bench with an improvised trellis to hold the heavy plants. I am eager to see buds. You may know them as Night Blooming Cereus.
Scarlet Orange, up Close
I am tickled to have one plant blooming. It is common in this area to see huge beds of Amaryllis blooming now, usually the old-fashioned red but sometimes white and shades of orange or pink.
The one blooming is planted in the ground. I decided to put all the
potted Amaryllis here, too. The big pots hold bulbs that bloomed indoors this past season. The small pots are seedlings and offsets. In August I'll put all the potted bulbs that are blooming size in a dry place to try to encourage bloom indoors during the winter.
The white shrub in bloom is Philadelphus.
There's another Amaryllis in the Greenhouse with a bud. The color will be a surprise.
