Cayenne, a Hadeco cultivar from Amaryllis Bulb Company. Emeryllis. com describes the color as Brick Orange. I think the color looks like a red pepper, so Cayenne is a good name for this. Both scapes bloomed at once, a very dramatic presentation. Flowers became showier as they aged. As is typical with the bulbs from Hadeco, it bloomed quickly, in under 3 weeks. Cayeene was a very nice start to this winter's blooms.

Double Circus from Royal Colors. This double is a pretty cherry red. The narrow petals come to a point, similar to a cultivar like Splash. As the bloom ages, the petals curve back, which softens its appearance. I hope that you can see what I mean in the second photo. The center bloom opened today, the bloom on the right is a week old. Most of the petals have a white or a paler "vein". I noticed that a lot of the red doubles have the inconsistent white markings.

Picasso from Royal Colors. A beautiful mid-sized white with a green throat, dark pink picatee edge and eye. The pink speckles add to its charm. Three scapes with 5 blooms each. It would be interesting to learn whether or not Picasso is a relative of Picotee, which is similar but lacks the speckling.

Magic Touch from White Flower Farms. These raspberry-red blooms are huge. The blooms have a white edge, green throat with a dark pink eye. 2 out of the 3 scapes bloomed at once, making a very impressive show.

Akiko from White Flower Farms. A pure white double with pale green throat. It had a fused double flower, which always adds interest (seen in lower photo).

Maybelle from White Flower Farm. A very pretty dark pink bloom with a dark green throat. The color combination is stunning. The petals curl back and show some ruffling as the flower ages.

Pleasure from White Flower Farms. This has a small flowered dark pink bloom. As is common with the smaller flowered cultivars, it has lots of pollen.

Hi everyone, I've been admiring everyone's pretty blooms. So far I have a surprise St. Joseph's lily bloom. I got the bulbs last September from a local gardener. I planted them in containers except for one that she had accidentally sliced through. I dusted it with cinnamon, left it out for a month, and then planted it. I tried forcing them into dormancy by leaving them outside when we had light frost expected and withholding water, but when I brought them in, they refused to go dormant. To my surprise last week, a few produced scapes and the one that had been sliced through, bloomed yesterday to my surprise. Thumbs up The bloom is a little deformed and pale but I'm glad it bloomed for me.

Cameron, goes to show that Amaryllis are surprisingly tough, since the bulb that was accidentally cut, survived and bloomed.
