Amaryllis on balcony table 2009-08-23.jpg (Amaryllis Hippeastrum)

I took this photo today of the red Amaryllis from outside of the balcony. All the plants you can see here are on a table on the balcony. The last dying flower from the red & white Amaryllis can be seen in the centre of this photo. It is in the same pot as the red ones. There is also a pure white one that isn't flowering this year.

That looks spectacular, balcony!

For some reason the red Amaryllis always seems to grab more attention than the the white & red one or the pure white one. As you can see from my avatar photo last year all three colours were open at the same time. They all live in the same pot as well.

Glad you like it. MD! :)

I like the stripy one too, but I'm a "red fiend" !
Can you get dark red ones?

You may be able to I don't know. There are 100s of cultivars so there's bound to be a deeper red one. There are also double ones. I've not actually seen them in the "flesh", so to speak, but I have seen photos of them & they were on sale here in Marks & Spencers at the beginning of the year. The shop has now been closed.
