Amaryllis Moved Outdoors, Now in Flower

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.IMG_3309

Modest victories like these are so lovely, especially when they happen in an unexpected season. Welcome (outdoors) Red Lion amaryllis!
