    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.

    I've been told that 'Apple Blossom' is a more common Amaryllis but it's still one of my favorites. I love purchasing bulbs to force for holiday blooms and 'Apple Blossom' is the only one I've ever had that sprouted blooms on such a short stalk!

It may be common, but for me this is one of the most perfect Amaryllis. A reliable bloomer with a wonderful colour and green throat and glistening petals.
