She is the first to arrive: a double red and next came St. Jospeh.

I love St. Joseph since it is one of the oldest heritage Amaryllis cultivars. It was the first one that I planted when I moved to Florida, but it got "misplaced" after being moved around in my garden several times. I suspect the bulb ended up being buried under perennials that I later planted. That's what happens when you don't mark your bulbs and then redo your foundation planting!

Tarev, yes, aren't they? Just love the double.

Barbara, what lovely amaryllis you have! I've got some NOID ones that are coming up - maybe you can help identify them:) I'm guilty of not marking bulbs, too...but trying to do better.

This is a favorite - dark velvety red but don't know her name.

Thanks, Margaret.
