More Amaryllis flowers during 2017!

Lets start at the turn of the year: Here are a couple that began flowering just before Christmas 2016 & continued into the New Year 2017 giving them the honour of being the only Amaryllis to flower over two years! :-D)

Here is a photo where you can see 10 plants all flowering at the same time on our living room table!

No the card with the number 65 on it wasn’t for my birthday but my wife’s! (I passed that “milestone” a couple of years back!)

One last one – for now!

This one I took early this morning.

Lovely! What a large collection you have!
The bright red one is particularly jolly.
Here is my tiny contribution to your gallery!

They are all truly beautiful!
Amarylis, I have never seen those with a short stem, they are really cute. Is that a special variety or a special growing technique?

I’m glad you liked the photos, Motherhen! Nevertheless this “gallery”, as you call it, isn’t mine, it’s a place where anyone who has a photo or two – or more, of Amaryllis, can upload them for all those who are interested in seeing them. Anyone can contribute with photos – just as you have done!

Philo, I haven’t done anything special to these short plants nor are they a different variety or species! I’m as surprised as you are! The only thing that occurs to me is that the bulbs were dried off during the winter but as they were quite small they have lost a lot of their water content & therefore are unable to grow to their normal height – as others have done.

I’ve had lots of other red ones flower at their usual height so that is the only reason I can think of. Even so I’ve written, on the backs of the pots, the word “Dwarf?” to remind me to look at them more carefully next year. I suspect though that they will return to their usual height after a years growth.

The photo shows two of the “dwarf” ones together on Saturday morning 22nd April 2017
