I didn’t think this Amaryllis was ever going to bloom. I had planted it a week before Exotic Star and that one bloomed on New Years day. Plus, one Exotic Star plant sent up another stalk and flowered last week !
Red Lion has a gorgeous red colour, but the pollen is everywhere as you can see in the second picture. Even so, these flowers are definitely brightening up the grey, gloomy day we are having. I’m sad this is my last Amaryllis to bloom – I’m wishing I had bought more than just 3 bulbs, but there is always next fall. I want to plant several different colours for a lovely display in my kitchen windows and dining room table. Maybe I’ll even remember to get the Christmas-blooming variety before Christmas this year.
Enjoying a light sprinkle of rain outside, just for a few minutes.
