Back in the early 80's we moved into a home that had a huge clump of all white Amaryllis near the back door. They had a very strong but lovely lemony scent and they perfumed the garden when they were in bloom. We moved away from that house in '99 and I foolishly did not take a bulb with me. By that time the clump was about 3' wide, no one would have noticed. Dumb move on my part.

Can you recommend any Amaryllis that are scented? Thanks

Yup. Jewel! A double with nice color and form.

Amputo, too. A single trumpet white. The scent is heavenly!

Hmmmm, I may have to try both! I think Amputo is closer to the bulbs I had as I do not recall them having double flowers but my nose will know.

Let us know if you get one whether it is the right scent.

Gordo, I noticed your Jewel is just like mine, one really doubled up and the others not...I wonder why they do that...any idea?
