(Amaryllis is a subtropical bulb that belongs to the Amaryllidaceae family and is native to South Africa. It is grown as a potted plant in most parts of the United States but can also be grown outdoors year round in warm areas like Florida.)
It seemed to me that the amaryllis this year were even more beautiful than usual if that’s possible. Here are a few photos as a look back at the season. My friend’s pink and whites bloomed early in March. She has a flower bed full of them which are gorgeous for 2 to 3 weeks a year. Then you have wilted leaves on the ground the rest of the year. As with most bulb plants, you need to leave the leaves for blooms next year. Another friend had pinks blooming in pots. They’re so pretty!
The neighbor at the end of the block has late-blooming reds that circle a tree. They are finishing up now.
Most of my amaryllis are red and are late bloomers. They are ending now as the lilies are starting.
Last year I added two pink and whites which finished 2 weeks ago. I’m starting several plants from seeds from Vickie’s March pink and whites and from my pink and white. I’m hoping to extend the length of blooms in my yard next year. Thanks for sharing my garden with me.
