Garden: "Good Morning" Amaryllis

Our oldest daughter and her husband live in North Florida. They are both avid gardeners. Most mornings, she sends me a photo with "Good Morning" and it's usually followed by something that our Grand-doggie, Sadie Belle is doing at the moment.

Last Sunday morning, this was my "Good Morning Amaryllis." I'd given her the lily bulbs when we moved from Orlando to Boca Raton in South Florida. I could hardly believe she had them blooming already. Some had as many as 5 blossoms on one stalk, but they are planted in the ground. This was a great first message of the day for us.

I was just about to post the same comment as glowgirl, the "smiley face". I saw that too, first thing! How cool! The amaryllis is beautiful! (03/07/2007)

That is a beautiful plant, and you have a very green thumb. I never have any luck with amaryllis. Makes me want to try my thumb at them again. (03/07/2007)

It is awesome! I, too, grew my first amaryllis this year and was amazed at how beautiful it was. I'm sure it won't be my last, tho! (03/07/2007)

Smile comment from me too! Great flower! Reminds me of my Grandpa. Every year he had great amaryllis plants. One year the newspaper even did an article about it with him in the picture with the plant. He is gone now but the memory stays. I think it was at our Oneida store in our outlet mall, I bought a vase and the top is the amaryllis flower. All glass, bought for a memory. I've never had luck growing these, maybe I'm just too impatient with the yearly work, but I loved seeing your picture! (03/08/2007)

A little humility, ladies. G-d (DNA) grew the flower, you guys just gave it room and board.

What a remarkable flower. A real beauty.

Beautiful. We were given an amaryllis for Christmas several years ago. We have kept it alive by letting it flower and be green until early fall. We let it die down, then put the bulb, out of its container, in a dry and dark place. In a few weeks, we bring it out, replant it and it flowers again. Gorgeous dark red flowers, for probably 5 years now. (03/13/2007)

Hello, Just had to send this picture of my amaryllis blooming. It has 4 flowers on and all are almost open now, so beautiful! The blooms are 8 inches big, and the plant is 30 inches tall in total. It is about 4 years old and now making a baby plant too. They are amazing plants! Thanks for letting me share this with you.

Please let us know how you care for your amaryllis. I haven't been able to get mine to rebloom. It has made several babies though. (05/01/2005)

I, too, would like to know how to keep an amaryllis. We haven't had much luck with them.
Thanks (05/01/2005)

Beautiful! My parents have several different colored amaryllis. But I've never seen a cream colored one before. Just lovely. Thanks for sharing! (05/01/2005)
