Amaryllis - Finally started planting some amaryllis.

They are one of my favorite plants and the breeders in South Africa and Holland are coming up with some really nice colors.    I planted a miniature amaryllis called peach blossom.  Its a has smaller trumpet shape flowers than the typical amaryllis.   I also planted exotica which is a very unusual color.   I also planted Rilona which has a color close to orange which isn't common in amaryllis  The Rilona were very large bulbs with a bunch of babies attached, which I will sell either this fall or next year.
