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.
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.
