Starting the 2nd week of December, I potted 2 or 3 Amaryllis bulbs a week until they were all planted. I need some color in the winter! I have 13 big bulbs (including one the Farmer gave me for Christmas) and a pot with some little bulbs that broke off the big bulbs. The first one is finally blooming! Isn’t she beautiful?
There are several other tall Amaryllis’ that will be opening soon. The the rest are short flower buds and a few are just starting to send up shoots. I don’t know what the colors will be until they bloom. I know I have at least 1 white bulb, several reds and a couple of apple blossom bulbs. Each one is very pretty and I can’t pick a favorite color.
I hope I will have continuous flowers for several months this winter.
