More Amaryllis


Finally the last two of the amaryllis to bloom. The lower one is "Lemon/Lime" and the other the white with a bit of red in the throat is an unknown. We didn't order it and it's not illustrated in the catalog we purchased the bulbs from so it must be a stray bulb that got in the wrong bin. I wasn't happy with all the purchases. The "Picotee" which should have been pure white with a thin red lining on the petal edges turned out white with a lot of speckled pink edges which covered about 1/2 of the petals looking more like the photo of "Bellisimo".

It's too bad you don't know the name of that white one because I like it best of all.

Kathy, I think the white one must be a throwback to the original single petal form from the more florid "Jewel" shown in the first photo-same red throat.
