Amaryllis, Time to Plant
Amaryllis / Ἀμαρυλλίς

I bought a nice fat Amaryllis bulb a week ago and planted it, for red and white color in my kitchen in December.
Now is the time to plant these beauties; just find a pot only a tiny bit bigger than the bulb. Ceramic is good because the pot weighs a bit so it will not topple over when the Amaryllis blooms.
I bought a Razzle Dazzle Amaryllis bulb, which will look much like the bloom in this photo.
Anyone else love Amaryllis?
Amaryllis come in a range of colors today, with even a lime green flower, and vibrant solid red, pure white, and salmon.
For photos my husband took of our crimson all red amaryllis, check my list of blog subjects on the right hand side of this blog and click on Amaryllis.
