  • Have had this one since the 1990's. It originally came mail order from either Park's or its then sister company, Wayside. This is the easiest one to force that I have and always blooms first. The flowers are large; around 8 inches across. But in all the time I've had it, there have never been more than 2 blooms per flower stalk. The bulb multiplies vigorously by offsets.
  • Lycoris squamigera and Amaryllis belladonna can be easily confused. L. squamigera has a green inflorescence stalk, versus a dark stalk on A. Belladonna.
  • I've grown mine 5 years and it skipped blooming last year, but had 5" flowers this spring, so no complaints.
  • Introduced by Ludwig in 1954, Apple Blossom is a thoroughly reliable and beautiful cultivar. It's deservedly one of the most popular and common varieties available. It's a gorgeous pink and white, well named as it resembles the blossom of apples in colouring. It never disappoints.
  • Raised by Dutch grower van Geest in 2015, it was registered as Terra Mystica in 2018, which is how it is sold outside the US. It is a smaller flowering variety with blooms of 4-5 inches. The flowers are a stunning burnt orange with a dark plum throat and lime green on the outer petals. The flowers also have a thin white picotee edging.
