O.K. This is my first time to force bulbs indoors, so I will admit I am inexperienced with this method of gardening, but I was completely surprised when my 'Apple Blossom' amaryllis bloomed into THIS!!! Don't think I don't appreciate this beautiful amaryllis, but what kind is she? Maybe she cross-pollinated with 'Red Lion' on the shelf next to her. Who knows???
Here's the proof that I purchased and potted what I thought was an 'Apple Blossom' amaryllis.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but from other posts that I've seen, 'Apple Blossom' is a pink and white amaryllis, as pictured on the box.
Here's my bulb a few weeks after planting...coming along quite nicely.
As the buds began to emerge, I thought they looked a bit more red than pink, but I guess I was still in denial that it was a different variety of amaryllis than 'Apple Blossom.'
I ended up with a beautiful cherry red and white amaryllis, but I have no idea what variety it is. Can you amaryllis lovers please help me out and tell me what variety I have?
