Amaryllis & Other Blooms

Now that the pale amaryllis are nearly done with their show, it’s time for the few reds to carry on the act. And I’m not disappointed. Knowing that as the years go by, the red amaryllis will fill this row and the start of April will be more than welcome….

The Blue Sage/Salvia farinacea is still going strong. I had bought the plants in January and they have been blooming since then.

Some of you had asked me whether Indian Blackberry/Syzygium cumini is “jamun”. Yes, it is. The buds have blossomed and the pollinators are getting busier each day. Several bees, wasps, and butterflies feast on the creamy blossoms.

And a new orchid, delicate and tiny, has bloomed for the first time. A gift from my hometown, it’s most likely to be one of the several species endemic to the region.

    That orchid is a real beauty!The blue Vanda which you had shown some time ago is another beautiful native of your region. Do you keep the seeds of the blue sage? Amaryllis always steal the show with their large and beautiful blooms.

    Amarylisy są piękne, a u nas mogą rosnąć tylko w doniczkach w domu. Dziękuję za miłe odwiedziny i życzę wspaniałych Świąt Wielkanocnych. Pozdrawiam.
    Amarylisy are beautiful, while we can grow only in pots at home. Thank you for your kind visit and wish you great Easter. Yours.

    Hi Kanak, last year I got 2 bulbs of that white amaryllis, which i planted in the office. Unfortunately, it has virus, so it grows but stunted and the leaves have yellowish streaks, which i assumed is a virus.I am glad i did not plant it at home, which might endanger our plenty of red-orange amaryllis.
