Amaryllis ‘Evergreen’

Earlier this year I contemplated trying some unusual amaryllis (Hippeastrum) varieties including I have almost no willpower anymore.

Yesterday, my friend David gifted me ‘Evergreen’, a new variety with soft, green petals that are thinner and more star-like than ‘Green Dragon’. I’m going to pot it up this afternoon and will post a photo in a month or so when it is blooming.

Now to decide whether or not to get anymore before they stop selling for the year…

  1. I was trying not to buy any amaryllis yet… because whenever I start treating myself in November and early December, I inevitably get them as Christmas gifts. Now it feels extra, extra hard to wait and see!

  2. Ooh! I love green flowered plants.

    Now that you have a whole house to fill with plants you don’t need to exercise will power anymore!!!
