I have had amaryllis in bloom since December 17th. What a gift!
I had this lovely pink variety, ‘Neon’ in bloom for Christmas. I have never seen anything like this one–it had 8 blooms per stalk! It definitely exceeded my wildest expectations. That was quite a Christmas gift.
‘Neon’ was followed by the white amaryllis, ‘Christmas Gift.’ For those of you who remember my struggle to actually get an amaryllis that was white, this really was a gift! It just finished blooming at the end of January.
And as I took the last blooming stalk off ‘Christmas Gift,’ ‘Temptation’ opened up. The timing was perfect. It should bloom for most of February.
I have another amaryllis bulb that I haven’t even potted up yet. And of course there are the ones from prior seasons yet to bloom. It looks like a lovely season ahead.
