Earlier this year I contemplated trying some unusual amaryllis (Hippeastrum) varieties including ‘Green Dragon’ , a compact, African amaryllis with bright green flowers with petals that look like fluttering wings.
But then I dropped the ball on that plan. With so many plants to relocate in the new space, I was hesitant to add anymore to the fray. Except that I have anyway. Within the last month I’ve added a good 15 new plants to my collection, including an amaryllis bulb I bought on impulse at the grocery store. I have almost no willpower anymore.
Yesterday, my friend David gifted me ‘Evergreen’, a new variety with soft, green petals that are thinner and more star-like than ‘Green Dragon’. I’m going to pot it up this afternoon and will post a photo in a month or so when it is blooming.
Now to decide whether or not to get anymore before they stop selling for the year…
