Amaryllis belladonna


I had posted a couple of photos of my Amaryllis, but now all 4 types are open.
First to open was the Amaryllis ‘Rose Fonce’, a full pink type.

Shortly after the white ones started opening.

After that, the one I hybridized put in its first appearance and has since put up a second stalk. It is in a raised bed that is next to the neighbor’s garage, so it gets reflected heat. It is Amaryllis ‘Fred Meyer White’ x Amaryllis ‘Rose Fonce’.

Now for comparison, here is the species type that has just started opening.

You can see how it takes after the ‘Rose Fonce’ in color of pink and it lacks the feathering the species has.
