Don't know why more people don't grow Amaryllis during the spring, a grouping of 3-5 make a spectacular display...very easy to overwinter.

Your flowers are beautiful and look healthy. I agree, that Amaryllis in the Southern and mid south landscape are beautiful and the foliage doesn't don't take up a lot of room, when they are out of bloom. That's why they are called the Southern Tulip, filling the spring flowering niche that is filled by spring bulbs in the north.

Thanks, they are a great plant and easy to overwinter...I enjoy putting them out in the spring, don't even bother forcing them in the winter anymore.
