White Amaryllis in the Spring

If you visited me last November, you may remember I had 2 blooming forced amaryllis bulbs.  One was a gorgeous large white amaryllis plant which  flowered for several weeks.

 

 


Forced White Amaryllis November 2019

 

 

My plan was to plant both forced bulbs in March, but life had other plans.  My lawn guy had been absent around here for 2 months (until last week he did knock on my door late one afternoon and offered to cut my high  grass).  Here in central Florida March and April are the months I make most of the changes to my yard before the heat of summer takes over. None of my landscaping plans happened, and the flower bed I was totally redoing still has nothing new.

 

 

 

 

After blooming in the spring, amaryllis can die back with just a few green leaves feeding the bulb.  The potted forced bulb’s largest leaves were turning yellow which was not a surprise. Then all of a sudden I see a bud. This really shocked me.  Most of the forced bulbs I have bought before did not re-bloom until the next year.

 

 

 

 

 

I put it in a new basket I got right before quarantine began and placed it on my dining room table.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What is even more wonderful is the fact that there are 2 more buds!

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can expect more photos shortly of white amaryllis.

  1. Your amaryllis is beautiful! I love the basket it’s in also. I noticed the pretty painting on your mantel of the irises. I miss my irises I had to leave behind in Ohio. Some were from my mother who passed in 2009. Your picture reminds me of them so much.

    1. I love bearded iris which was everywhere in Tennessee where I grew up. It’s too hot here in Florida for them. I just love the canvase print of them. Reminds me of childhood.

  2. The white amaryllis looks prisitne! Yay for two more buds. I like these kinds of surprises. Something similar happened with our bearded irisises outside. This year there are more buds for extra flowers. Without saying , am thrilled:) Many thanks for keeping All Seasons updated on your beautiful flowers. Wishing you a happy week, Jesh

  3. Carol – you got your money’s worth with that amaryllis! Isn’t it the simple things that make us the most joyful? Thanks for linking this beauty to Mosaic Monday!

  4. Hello, the Amaryllis is lovely, a beautiful bloom. What a pretty surprise. Take care! Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!

  5. How pretty! Thanks so much for linking up with me at my #UnlimitedMonthlyLinkParty 12, open May 1 to 26. All party entries shared if social media buttons installed.

  6. Wow! That white amaryillis is even more showy than the red ones. You must have a green thumb, Carol, to get a forced one to rebloom.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
