Roaring like a lion, a Red Lion amaryllis, that is! I moved all three of my amaryllis plants outdoors about a 18 months ago. They’ve been quiet for a while, producing healthy green leaves but no flowers, until now! A Red Lion amaryllis is producing one flower, which I am glad to see. Although I’m used to seeing 4 flowers per plant, it is heartening to see that the move outdoors did not wipe out the flower-producing power of at least this one might amaryllis. As time goes by, there may be more flowers from this one plant, or perhaps flowers from the other amaryllis bulbs.
Modest victories like these are so lovely, especially when they happen in an unexpected season. Welcome (outdoors) Red Lion amaryllis!
