I have a few Hadeco blooms from Eden Blooms that have already flowered. They came at the end of September.
The first is Barotse. The color is very pretty, in some light it looks like a dark raspberry, it other light it looks more red. The flower is long lasting.

Vegas from Hadeco. A huge double. The color starts out red, and as the flower ages turns into a very pretty dark pink.

May I ask why you cut your blooms and place them in bud vases? Is it for personal enjoyment or is there a benefit to the bulbs by doing so?

Vesuvious is a stunner.

There's no benefit to cutting them. I keep my first year bulbs in a south facing unheated glass porch for the winter. I have a terrible problem with fungus knats in that room. I keep that room closed off from the rest of the house to contain the knats, which otherwise would become a real pest in the living areas of the house. I enjoy the flowers on my kitchen windowsill as cut flowers. They last as long, or perhaps even a day or two longer, as they would uncut. Of course I am not trying to produce seed. Once the bulbs have their first year's bloom, I plant them outside in dedicated Amaryllis beds, and after a year or two of recovery, they bloom in March-April. We have occasional frost where I live, but mulch on the beds during the winter keeps the bulbs from freezing solid.

Thank you for the explanation. Makes perfect sense and am so envious you're able to leave yours in the ground. Mine spend Summer vacation on our screened in back porch and then bring the pots in around mid-October or so, depending on the night time temps. Not one has bloomed yet in Summer.

Alfresco began blooming today, a new one received a few weeks ago.

I like Rozetta. Yours is very pretty.
This is the first one of my Dutch bulbs to come into bloom. Full House from American Meadows. The bloom is about 5 inches or 13 cms across, so its midsize between a miniature and a standard. Its more of a blood red than the photo shows. One of this cultivar's characteristics is having at least 6 flowers / scape. I like the crisp appearance of the white star. This cultivar is also sold as Tres Chic

Top Choice, a Hadeco cultivar: Smaller flowered, lots of buds, orangish red, lots of pollen that unfortunately stains the flower.

Intokazi, the old reliable white from Hadeco, that is very commonly seen in boxed bulbs sold for Xmas. When some of the buds open, a few faint pink "veins" can be seen which disappear in a day or two. On the first scape of this bulb, 2 of the 4 buds had this pink. According to Emaryllis.com, the pink defect is a problem found in some of the current Intokazi stock.

Happy Birthday wishes to you! And many more. Enjoy your day.


Here's Royal Velvet looking very Christmassy with four large blooms. This is the third stalk in as many weeks. The bulb was huge I thought, about the size of a grapefruit.

Thank you, I am officially a senior citizen today. Your Royal Velvet sounds like it was a "mother bulb". 3 flower scapes is pretty unusual.

Very nice, but check your ID on DG plant files. The cultivar Susan is pink. Could you have received this as a mislabelled bulb? I've already had 3 mislabelled bulbs this year.

Malaga from Eden Blooms. A midsized red-orange double. Compact, nicely shaped blooms. I like this one. I have 2 more minis from Royal Colors: Those will be the last of this season's new blooms. Central Florida has had a mild winter so far. A lot of my outdoor Amaryllis think it is spring and are just about ready to bloom, a good month ahead of schedule. My fingers are crossed that we don't get a killing frost in Feb, since I will loss a lot of blooms.
