All Four 2019/2020 Amaryllis - Mid-January 2020
A couple of days ago, I shared some photos of the flowers of the 'double blooming' Cherry Nymph Amaryllis that I planted in November. I only showed the flowers, but wanted to revisit (for record-keeping sake) all four of the bulbs for height and vitality in January. The last time I posted photos of these flowers was on January 2nd. You can see the photo of these same four flowers 2.5 weeks ago here.
Left-to-right, the flowers are: Apple Blossom (Menards), Red Lion (Menards), Star of Holland (Menards) and Cherry Nymph (Wannemakers).
- The Red Lion bloomed first and exhausted itself first, too. This had two stalks/stems.
- The Apple Blossom went second and is also exhausted. However, this was the only one that had just one stalk/stem.
- The Red Lion has a bud that is about to burst open. It was behind the other two, but the second stem/stalk will have flowers (I think) into February.
- And, finally, the heights were all over the place: the Red Lion was treated with the most alcohol and it is the shortest. The Cherry Nymph is the tallest - by far.
