Beautiful, Chan! I recently considered buying some more paperwhite bulbs (which I have every Christmas) to force just to have some live flowers around the house. I didn't, however, and will have to live vicariously through thoughts of your's!


I admire your sticktoitiveness, and I like the word! The bloom was worth the patient (or impatient) wait.

Avril - Thank you! I missed the boat on paperwhites this season too, so this amaryllis has been the saving grace of the winter.

NJ - I've decided that the key to "patience" with amaryllis is the putting-it-in-a-dark-closet- and-forgetting-about-it stage. Thanks for the compliments!


My mother-in-law loved pink. She died about 7 years ago. At least 10 years ago, but probably more like 15 or even more, she gave us an apple blossom amaryllis. I have bought other amaryllis through the years, and they have lived and died. But this one blooms every year and reminds us of her.
