Is This Normal...

I don't know much about Amaryllis and don't know much about them.

I got this orange amaryllis two years ago from a friend and planted it...but it didn't bloom the second year. This year it bloomed...but look at the color...is this normal for Amaryllis? To start out orange and change colors the next time it blooms? Does it have something to do with a missing nutriet...I have another orange one planted in a different location...it has a bud but hasn't opened yet...I'll be curious to see what color this one turns out.

Thanks!

Well, I had a red one last year that this year bloomed decidedly orange, but I've never seen one that totally changed it's stripes..so to speak..! It's still very pretty though...will be interesting to see if all your flowers on this particular bulb look like the one above..

I guess that you received a whole cluster of Knight Star Lilies together in one container. The scape that would emerge THIS season, is simply from another bulb, and another hybrid, individual, clone, you name it, respectively. It is a heirloom hybrid, and it is not looking that bad at all! Is it fragrant?

Nancy, I don't know much about Amaryllis either, but I know one thing: I love your bloom :-)

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks everyone!! Appreciate the nice comments and explanation. My other plant should bloom orange I'm pretty sure because that one I purchased as a "single" bulb. I'll post a picture of that one when it opens.

It has a weak scent...so I wouldn't say its fragrant. It is pretty though! Hopefully, I'll get another bloom and a different color too.

Hi Xuan, nice to see you too!!
