Red

I have started keeping my Amaryllis bulbs after they have finished flowering and just keep watering them a bit all year and they are rewarding me by flowering again each spring. This red beauty is from 2 years ago and it has just opened up this week which is a treat since spring seems to be late arriving here.  The bulb from 3 years ago has a large bud too so I am looking forward to a show from it in the next week or so!

Is this where you got your name from Pat?

That looks like the dictionary definition of 'red'.

Such wonderful showy blooms. I didn't know you could keep them going all year.

You are certainly doing something very right! I have an amaryllis bulb that has leaves. Just leaves. Yours is very pretty.

How do you do that? I just look at a potted plant and it keels over and dies! The only time my thumb got green was when eating a green jelly bean!

This is so beautiful!

Lovely!

Good for you, RedPat. I haven't grown amaryllis in many years, but I always tossed the bulbs out after they bloomed. Big mistake, I see.

I can't believe how large these get.

How wonderful to get two blooms Pat, that is such a beautifully exotic bloom. Looking forward to the next bloom later in the week.
