July Amaryllis

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. Amaryllis flower in the late winter through early spring in central Florida.



I’ve shared multiple posts this year on my amazing white amaryllis which has flowered multiple times  this summer.  Right before Independence Day, my big white amaryllis produced a huge new stalk with 4 buds. I captured these photos before the winds and rain from the tropical storm Elsa bent the stalk with the open flowers to the ground.  I cut the flowers for a bouquet I shared with Amaryllis & Anthurium.  It is amazing to have spring flowers so late but I am not complaining – I would be thrilled if amaryllis bloomed all summer.  It would be like having your tulips bloom in July!

  1. I just love your Amaryllis. They are so beautiful. We haven’t even had our lawn put in yet. We are very frustrated around here. Have a beautiful Sunday Carol.

  2. Carol – I am happy for you that the amaryllis continues to bring you such joy. And that you share it with all of us at Mosaic Monday! Some would say that the pure white is boring, but I love the elegant simplicity!

  3. I live in the city, so I love seeing your flower shots, we do not get too much of this that is easily visible in my neighborhood!

    1. Living in a large city is very different for sure. I’ve seen photos of some folks growing plants on roofs in cities which looks amazing. Do you like houseplants? I can suggest a couple if you’re interested.

  4. I grow an amaryllis every year for Christmas. They are such stunning flowers. This is a beauty. Ps sorry this is such a late comment, life has been a little hectic and I am so behind on catching up with #mysundayphoto

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