I had three amaryllis open yesterday.
First up is Red Lion 2008, the same bulb that kicked off the 2016/2017 flowering season for me in September so this is its second scape for the season. This bulb has very orangish-leaning tendencies, especially when my eyes are used to looking at all the dark true reds I've had blooming recently.
Next up is #26 for the year, my second Magical Touch to bloom. One of the places I ordered from last fall only sells their bulbs in bundles of three, so that's why I have multiples of some varieties. I may be selling and/or trading the extras in the future, since I don't really have room for so many. This Magical Touch bloomed out nicely. Love that raspberry red with the white picotee edge.
Last up is #27, which is unfortunately another mislabel. It was supposed to be Flamenco Queen, but is Samba. Sigh.
This is from the same company that I got the mislabeled Hercules and
Ambiance from as well. I ordered six bulbs from them, and three of
the five that have bloomed so far are wrong. Will the last one bloom
correctly and hold the mislabel rate to 50%? Time will tell. Either way, whether it's half or two thirds, I'm not impressed.
It's still a pretty flower, though.
