Hippeastrum 'Rilona'


Hippeastrum 'Rilona'

Absolutely beautiful...such a joy at this time of year. I had hoped for Christmas flowers but she came up quickly. So I've just been and bought and planted two more for later on. Hopefully they will grow well. Different colours...one more reddish and a white double one.

Beautiful flowers, Karen! I think you may still get some flowers on the 2nd bud still in the neck of the bulb in time for Christmas.

Just today I found another Amaryllis that should be hibernating with a scape about 6" high! That makes it three bulbs that have had flowers when they were supposed to be hibernating!

Thanks Aleyna. Balcony...should I cut the stem off at the base when the current flowers are over?

I always wait till the stem dies down of its own accord as the water in the stem can then be reassimilated by the bulb which loses a lot of water & can shrink quite a lot. Cut the dead flowers off by all means but be careful because unless they are completely dried out & shrivelled up they can stain your hands or clothes - don't be alarmed though as they don't leave permanent stains, they come out in the wash!
