Flower Of The Day #8 Amaryllis

There’s really not much to say about this flower, the Amaryllis…… large bulb at the bottom, long thick stem, then an explosion of colour in a single flower at the top of the stem. A beautiful house plant in England but in different parts of the world probably grown outdoors.

  1. I managed to grow a white one in the garden a few years ago but I left it in the ground and the bulb rotted. I thought the fairies would be looked after it for me!

  2. Stunning photograph. Definitely not an outdoors plant here in Alberta. I have an heirloom one, in the sense that the bulbs I now have are descended from bulbs I got from my mother about 40 years ago. Still blooms in spite of me.
