Okay, I shouldn’t be complaining–and really, I am not. I bought a white amaryllis and it’s blooming white. So already I am so far ahead of last year when my white amaryllis was some funky red bicolor.
Further, it appears that this bulb will have 3 blooms–2 of the usual sort and then this creative thing coming out of its base. So I am way ahead of the game.
If I actually look at it artistically, it appears as if someone–not me, because I never could have come up with this idea–creatively draped this bloom in the pot. But no! It’s actually attached to the bulb, and blooming sideways out of the base. Very strange.
This is what makes gardening great. Plants just never lose the ability to surprise and delight. This is way better than I ever planned!
