Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

The Idea behind Bloom Day is that garden bloggers from around the world on the 15th of every month will place photos on their website of what is in bloom in their home and garden. The index of other bloggers can be found on Carol's website, www.maydreamsgardens.com.

Here is my entry for January's Bloom Day, Amaryllis 'Evergreen'. It seems like many people have the same taste in amaryllis. This is my second year for this amaryllis, and it has 9 flowers on one scape.

In the photo you can tell that I have removed most of the stamens. I have been brushing the stigma with pollen from Amaryllis 'Lemon Sorbet' with hopes that any seedlings that may come will be more compact. The flower on 'Evergreen' stands 28 inches tall.
