Thanks Margaret. The friend that gave me a couple of the bulbs thought it was called a Pink Angel. However in researching that name I couldn't find one that looked like it. There were several in the ATP database that had some similarities but I couldn't pin it down to a specific one. I have used one of my bulbs as a demonstration on bulb chipping for a propagation class I taught this last week and wanted to put the correct name on it in the display area of our greenhouse. Thanks again.

Your welcome Duane. That sound like an interesting class, maybe you should write an article about the bulb chipping for ATP.

I was considering doing an article but wanted to take pictures of the process from beginning to end so be looking for it around middle of March.

After all these years it seems, I too, have amaryllis, Apple Blossom. Mine are very iridescent, almost glittery on the white parts. Does that sound right? The bulb stock came from my 89 year old MIL in Seattle over 20 years ago. She got them from HER mother's garden in Pennsylvania. Is it possible that it could be Apple Blossom named that way back when?

Thanks Margaret. They are special to me, obviously. They naturalize here in Texas so there is nothing special I have to do. They have reseeded. The young ones are a different color. Eventually, after many years, and growth they look like their mom(s). I have shared so many of these over the years.

That's Apple Blossom (1954) which is one of the oldest cultivars that has remained in commercial production. If you buy an unlabeled pink and white bulb, that's usually what you're getting.
