Broken amaryllis opened

Gorgeous, is it a double? Nice trick with the sugar water :) I decapitated a lily yesterday, by carelessly whipping the garden hose around! I was so mad at myself!! I stuck it in a vase of water hoping that it might bloom anyway. What's the sugar/water ratio that Lori told you about?

It is a double, Blossom peacock, this was its second go around this spring! Oops, sorry about the lily. Lori just said sugar, so I sprinkled in a little. Two pinches to a cup was what I did. :-)

Wow not seen a double before, and such a delicate colour, glad it survived!

Thanks SK. I was so sad. The last bloom was only a single...hm. :-)

That's a tip I shall have to remember, especially when my Amaryllis seedlings begin to flower.

Last year I saw some double Amaryllis for sale for the very first time. I'm afraid I didn't like the look of them at al & I'm afraid I still don't. But perhaps I ought to see one in flower for myself before condemning them out of hand.

I feel the same about so called "blue" roses & I HAVE seen plenty of them in many variations but I still continue to dislike them.

Thank you Avis. They are so big right now up on the steps, living the high life....lol.

This is one of the many wonderful plants I missed. It's super.

Thanks GG. All my amaryllis went dormant just this month so I think I'll be seeing the flowerrs later in the year than last. And hopefully not break this one off again. :-)
