Lemon Star Amaryllis in Bloom - January 2022
The Lemon Star Amaryllis bulb - that we planted in early November - sure missed the Christmas (and even New Year's) window, but it is now the real star of the show. After the other blooms are (now) past their peak, this one is currently putting on a lovely green party in the center of our countertop. The flowers are pretty big, but there isn't a ton of them - and they're not double-bloomed. The other Amaryllis' that we've grown over the years have always tended towards the red/pink/maroon-type. The Bird picked this one out because it was different. Pretty sure it was the only green one at Wannemaker's this year. Would recommend it to anyone - looking to do something a little more unique.
Looking back at this post from January 5th, it appears that 9 days of difference shows the growth from a closed, pointy bud on top of the stalk to having flowers on all four sides open and in bloom.
There's another, lower secondary stalk with a bud emerging, so we'll get (I hope) another Lemon Star show later in January.
