Botanical Amaryllis

Welcome to Week 2 of The Blooms.

For me, there is something magical about watching an amaryllis grow. Once the shoot appears from the bulb it’s amazing how quickly the upright stem grows and it is hard to imagine that four beautiful blooms will appear from its bud. Growing them without soil in large vases or pickle jars allows one to witness such beauty, like a botanical specimen.
