I planted one large bulbs in my raised bed 3 years ago. This year I moved it to the other end of the raised bed to make room for a dwarf hibiscus and it had multiplied to 5 large bulbs 2 mediums bulbs and 5 small ones. It's bloom lasts the longest of my 5 different amaryllis. I had 6 full weeks of good looking blooms with a total of 5 stalks on the 5 large bulbs. My husband even told me how much he liked it.

One of my all-time favorites. A glorious, raucous, joyous fiesta-on-a stick!

Grows vigorously and offsets regularly and never fails to bloom for me. Sometimes reblooms in the summer as well.

I took a nice full scape to a friend who had never seen DQ before, and she went crazy for it. She took it to church with her and placed it in the sanctuary.
