The first amaryllis of the 2016/2017 season is blooming!
The color on these flowers is a little paler than usual because the scape developed in warm weather. But the stem and leaves are good and strong, with more leaves still developing. I should get another scape from this bulb later this winter.
This is the 2008 Red Lion bulb, which was a Christmas present from my Dad. This is its ninth blooming for me.
Amaryllis are such great plants.
