Amaryllis Colors

amaryllis, Hippeastrum
I love having enough amaryllis to pick bunches for the house. This red one is one of two varieties that have gone native in our suburb. They are in essentially every garden. These I picked from in front of a camellia in front and they need to be moved. They don’t show up against the dark camellia leaves. Moral: plant pale-colored ones there and move the red ones to a sunny area in back.


  1. Hi! I didn’t see an email address, and I wanted to let you know this site has been added to the blogroll at where I have an extensive list of Georgia blogs. I also maintain the Georgia Blog Carnival, and I invite you to participate. You can find more information about it at my site.

    You know, amaryllis are the only flowers I can actually grow. :)

  3. Hi! Your amaryllis are really beautiful. My mom used to grow them in pots that filled up our living room windows when I was a kid, so seeing this brought back memories. Thanks.
