Thanks, 3d! It is indeed a beautiful flower! It's one of my Anglo-American hybrids & there are several bulbs in the same pot - bursting to get out!

There is also a 2nd scape (flowering stem) that is rising above the leaves! You can just make out the bud, just below the open flower. In a week's time it will also be flowering!

Today a 3rd flower is just starting to open. In another couple of days the 4th flower will also open! The flowers really are HUGE! My outstretched hand doesn't cover the flower completely! They can reach up to 8" (yes, eight inches!) across!!! Perhaps I'll take, & later upload, a photo tomorrow with my outstretched hand in front of it.

Great there are several bulb in one pot will you be splitting them.

Thats great you have another flower coming I shall look out for your out stretched hand across the flower.

Sorry to disappoint you, 3d, but this flower isn't one of those that reaches up to 8 inches across. I didn't forget about the photo either just that being about 6 inches across my hand covers it completely!

If I can find the photos from last year (though I have just remembered - I posted it in a blog I did of Amaryllis!) I'll upload one or two from my computer.
