Is This Green Enough for You?

I promise this will be my last amaryllis post of the season, if only because I am fresh out of blooming amaryllis to write about. Well, that’s not entirely true. The ‘Nymph’ (or ‘Sydney’ or who knows what anything is anymore since nearly all of my bulbs came misidentified) has a second stalk that will open in the next few days. I promise not to write about it unless it bursts open and spills out a fountain of loose change. Or talks.

Anything is possible at this point.

I know, I know. I’m kidding no one but myself. One day next week the light will hit the new bloom just so and within hours there will be a post. Apologies in advance.

Some of you complained that ‘Green Dragon’ wasn’t really green, it was more or less white with some hints of green in it. I disagree, it was green enough for me, but whatever… Let’s not fight about it. (p.s. You’re wrong.) Instead, I present to you ‘Evergreen’ a green flower that I think we can all safely agree is green.

All of us, that is, except Davin. I suspect he will read this post and try to argue that it is yellow.

  1. Mr. Brown Thumb: ‘Lemon Lime’ looks nice, too.

    Elaine: Very nice palette. I like that tool. Thanks for introducing me to it.

    Chiot’s Run: It should be!

  2. This bulb is Georgious,to me it is diffently green and I love it. Is there a way that I can buy some bulbs from You? I surely hope so. Please let me know. I love bulbs anyway, I guess you can say that I think they are a little less trouble to take care of. You always have the prettiest captions that just capture you in a new net everytime you see them. I love your columne.

  3. David: I didn’t mention it, but yes, the flower stalk is VERY long. I thought it was just me, even though I had mine in good light until it bloomed. But seems like that’s just how it is.

  4. Wow…I had never seen a green amaryllis! It’s stunning…yet it’s strangely evocative of some sort of alien landscape.

    Maybe you can claim to be gardening on Neptune or something!

  5. Those flowers are really beautiful! I also have to say that I agree with you about the color of the ‘Green Dragon’, its looks pretty green to me. haha
