Greenthumb's Garden

Amaryllis 'Blossom Peacock'

Genus: Hippeastrum.

Species: Hippeastrum papilio.

A small double bloomer, each blossom carries about fifteen petals. I had a second stalk grow right behind the fading first flush which carried flowers just a tad smaller than the first. Between all four varieties, by stagger planting them, I had blooms for the last three months. Kept in a small 4" pot as are the others, I epect to be able to summer over placed in the garden or greenhouse and feed a few times to store up for next years show. I will lift in fall to check for any babies that may be growing and make sure it nothing is going on underground that I can't see. I'll have to come back if I note any issues.
