Amaryllyis

After taking three weeks of waiting this flower first started to grow. It came out between Christmas and New Years and has just finished flowering. I have cut off the stalk and was pleasantly surprised another shoot is starting to appear. The stem was always pale.  This wasn’t a particularly expensive  bulb but next year I’ll spend more to get a better bulb, I wasn’t sure what would grow in this location.

I do like growing one every winter.

    Beautiful! I love them too… my problem is getting them to die back all the way so that I can grow them again the next year. They just get all white and weird looking.
