Gardeners' Notes:

I bought Jewel on sale as I can't resist sales. However, I don't think it is nearly as showy as any red, pink or combination cultivars. Maybe in an all-white garden it might make more of a statement. Planted inground, full sun.

Spring 2007: changed my rating to positive as this year's blooms are outstanding.

A gracilis dulcinea created by Miyake Nursery, 'Jewel' is known to have a delightful spicy scent. One of the most delightful amaryllis we have grown, and an early one, which can be featured with miniature azaleas and other bulbs in containers for winter floral display. White with a green throat. 18-20 inches high.
