Very pretty! And not too tall, so you don't risk it breaking either! I love the color!

How beautiful! Do you keep it from year to year?

If you have good luck keeping it, let me know how you do it! I'm famous for killing bulbs in the "off season"...

just bringing this back to life so I can put my in..my Mom had an Amaryllis before they were popular, she had it for over 10 years, it grew leaves great and every 2 years or so she would get flowers, It never got "leggy" like these ones do so it grew great. I actually never knew it was an Amaryllis until they started to sell them at Christmas time. pbp
