A new one from us...

Gulfport, FL(Zone 9b)

What is this? An amaryllis blooming in September?
Didn't expect this at all. Made this cross over three years ago. I was rummaging around yesterday, making DYMO labels for all of the amaryllis, when I came across this.

Germa x H.papillio. First bloom.

I also wanted to mention to JT that this is a cross with one of those Doran h.papillio he purchased from me. It is a very green bloom, much like the pollen donor.
Anyway, I was really delighted.

Liz that is both unusual and beautiful.I look forward to using some of that Doran strain pollen on some of mine this year.
If I were you I would take special care of that one and let it multiply..
Here is another September bloomer.Lemon Lime from Carter.

Here's the latest pic of a new bloom on this one. I can't tell you how satisfying it is to know the cross was successful. A completely new flower form has been born. :-)

Wow Gordo that is beautiful!!!

Fate, TX(Zone 8a)

really is gordo. can you direct me to photos that show someone crossing an amaryllis? also, from the time that seeds sprout how long until you see a bloom?

Wauchula, FL(Zone 9b)

Great crosses! Do you sell Ammies Gordo?

Gulfport, FL(Zone 9b)

Yes, I do. I should have some available this coming spring. They will be on the small side as I have to wait for the parent to offset.
