This is an amaryllis passed along to me by our back-fence neighbor. He grows dozens of these every year in his garden. When he divided them a few weeks ago, he tossed me some over the back fence. He couldn’t remember the color or name but I didn’t care. Knowing they wouldn’t bloom this first year in our garden because of transplanting, I planted them next to our only amaryllis. I wasn’t sure if it would even survive given our lack of rain the past few weeks.
This amaryllis is determined to make sure I know what color it is. I’m way too excited about this bloom, small though it may be.
