A friend and I have plants numerous amaryllis out side this spring. A beautiful red bloom appeared around May 4th or 5th. She was thrilled and walked to the front of her house 3 or 4 times each day to enjoy it. On the morning of May 10th during her 1st am visit she found the stalked chewed halfway up and the stalk and beautiful red bloom missing. I have no idea what it could be except an armodilla which are abundant in our area but I thought they dug up bulbs which I thought would happen at my house as the animals are very happy at my place but I'm not missing any bulbs yet!
We live in western Alabama the days have been warm and nice the nice cool 50 to high 60's this May. Any idea about what could have helped themselves to the amaryllis?

No clue, sorry... sounds like the varmint only got the flower stalk, though, so that's something!

Here, I'd be guessing bunny or groundhog, probably groundhog. I guess armadillos are your local equivalent.

Hmm, the stalk wasn't "chewed" as if some 2-legged varmint had inexpertly helped themselves to the bloom, was it?
