Thanks Lin, I saw it but didn't order as not all places ship to Canada. I did order 4 bulbs from Royal Colors, I got, Violetta, Stardust, Charisma and Sweet Nymph. I hope they are as pretty as their photos show. That will make a dozen plants, I think that's about all of the space I have in the window, so no more. Rolling on the floor laughing

Lin, do you have a greenhouse or keep them in the ground all year? Shrug!

No greenhouse; I have a big Red LIon in ground and another that I can't remember the name of and I have a couple in containers too. I used to have a bunch but gave most of them to my sister a couple of years ago; she lives in south Florida and they do really well in the ground there!

Hippeastrum 'Estella' .................. and 'Jewel'(which has a very faint fragrance):
Thumb of 2013-12-08/plantladylin/5614fa

'Charisma' has a bud as does another that I think is 'Apple Blossom' but I can't be sure until the bloom opens. It's one I dug from the yard a couple of months ago and the label/tag is long gone.

Lin, they are lovely!

So far all from Royal Colors, Sweet Nymph is blooming, it had 2 nice stalks and is getting a third between the others. Violetta should open in a few days, Stardust has 2 stalks with large buds buds and Charisma has one bloom stalk which is still very short.

Sweet Nymph

Thank you Lin! I tip my hat to you. The buds are splitting apart this morning on Violetta and I am really excited to see the blooms open, going to be a few days though. Sad
