I bought this Amaryllis about a month ago. Have not had one for many years and I was very intrigued with it's color.
Might just need to get some more.

Thank you to Margaret & Barbara for all of their assistance and information to make this an easy transition for me.

That is a particularly nice Papilio bloom. Interesting lighting or photo editing, you really brought out the green. Any chance of seeing a photo in natural light. I always like to see the bloom both ways. I like your background, makes the bloom pop out.
