Amaryllis

Today I am posting a few photographs of a huge Amaryllis plant that I have seen grow at a neighbors shop.

Just last year I had been waiting to see it bloom and missed it, however, this year the plant became huge and started to have large buds appear and I watched every few days till I saw it start to open and then captured some of the blooms as they opened.

I hope you enjoy the photographs, please click on any photograph to enlarge for a better view.


A rather misleading view of the plant...notice the big Elephant Ear type leaves sticking out?...they are from another plant that he had planted in there..not from the Amaryllis plant.

A close view of one of the blooms that had opened.

A better view inside the bloom


Getting even more up close and personal view.
