The petals on amaryllis Blossom Peacock appear to have been dipped, one at a time in rosy red Easter egg dye and then reassembled to create a double flower form. The dye drips off the center rib leaving a white streak that extends out to the petal's pointed tip. Fascinating. Oh, and this amaryllis is one of the few that's fragrant.
Tip: all amaryllis bulbs are not the same. Larger bulbs produce more flower stalks and more blooms per stalk. Get big, healthy, carefully held bulbs - optimum temperature, humidity and light conditions - here and enjoy truly stunning flowering amaryllis. (Note: different varieties mature to different bulb sizes. All the bulbs here are large to very large for the individual cultivar.)
