elegant ladies

I've been getting such pleasure from these beautiful amaryllis. They grow so fast and bloom so dramatically. I bought these in Ikea of all places in early December. My normal preference for colour is a definite shade like the red, but I'm so glad I got the pale one as well - that pinky blush is so delicate and lovely.


  1. ooh I really love them - what were they like when you bought them? xxx

  2. No, about 6 - 8 inches tall when I bought them - watching them shoot up almost visibly and produce buds and bloom is part of the pleasure. These have both had two blooming stems, which is very prolific. The last amaryllis I bought a couple of years ago didn't flower at all!
