Red Amaryllis Flowers

I live in Central Florida, growing zone 9B which is semi-tropical. 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. The red amaryllis you buy at Christmas are FORCED bulbs.

For the last few weeks, several red amaryllis have formed buds and then bloomed.

I hope my bright red flowers made you smile.

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

  1. Wow, lovely! I remember we had an amaryllis in a pot back in high school, but they don’t grow outdoors here at all (I live in the Netherlands). Thanks for sharing. #MMBC

    1. we do have exotic blooms from lots of other places, don’t we? I like living in semi-tropical Florida.

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