Actually, it’s a Hippeastrum. From South America. Indoor bulb.

Amaryllis (Amarylli?…) hail from South Africa. Outdoor bulb.

But they generally run under Amaryliss and you have to fight your way through jungles of the darn things at this time of year.

Mostly red, of course.

Not cheap either.

Thought I’d do my usual €/kg calculation

(Warning: DON’T DO IT for the lady-of-the-house’s apparel. It’ll put you in a state of shock from which you’ll likely not recover.)

Thought they’d be heavier. tbh.

Wasn’t wearing my specs so I had to ask “Is this the weight of Amaryllis?”

Sounds a bit like the title of a song, but I can’t quite…..


This one!
