Amaryllis Love

December 15, 2017

Flower Friday brings us this stunning Amaryllis La Paz. It is always such a treat to sort through the bin at City People’s deciding which bulbs get to come back to the shop to delight us for the season. This one is so delicate and has a sort of orchid vibe to it. I have enjoyed a potted version before, but had never tried forcing a bulb in this variety. It opened the other day to all our delight. The whole process of watching it grow over this last month is truly a gift. Of course I am as enamored with the roots too–so beautiful they are swirling around in the water. Cheers to amaryllis in all forms & stages!
