Double Amaryllis (Amaryllis belladonna) 4 different colour varieties. 4種重瓣孤挺花花色

Finally I have purchased and planted 4 different double varieties this year!   Each bulb is a bit bigger than my fist.  It will be very nice to see them bloom around Christmas and new year.  🙂   Even though they are native to South America and Africa but nowadays they are so popular everywhere in the world!

今年終於買到並種下了4種不同花色的重瓣孤挺花!  每一球的大小比拳頭稍大些,很結實.  可望在聖誕節和新年期間賞到花.  🙂  雖然孤挺花原生於南美及非洲地區但是由於它們好種又極受到歡迎,現在世界各地就到處可見!

Acer rubrum (Red Maple, also known as Swamp, Water or Soft Maple), is one of the most common and widespread deciduous trees here in Canada. Its tiny red flowers are quite showy in spring. I love its stunning red fall colour!!

Well, if I do not let it seed the second flower stem will have larger flowers. If I let it seed the flowers will be smaller.

To have both, I will need to fertilize it to keep both. And I like that! 🙂
