New purchases

I so loved seeing everyone's varieties of amaryllis that i could not help myself. I ordered 4 more bulbs - "Half and Half", "Bogota", Exotica" and Exotic Star".

Now I pray they will duck in between sub-freezing temps.

I also got rid on my paperwhites. After reading of (Donna's???) ongoing saga of the Narcissus Bulb Fly, I got quite nervous having them in the house.

I'll keep you posted on their arrival.

Congrats on your new additions Marie. You picked some gorgeous hybrids as you will soon see. Please share when they flower. -J

RE: New purchases

I agree, you did pick some beautiful varieties!

As for the Narcissus Bulb Flies in your paperwhites, if they were new bulbs that you bought last fall and hadn't spent the summer our of doors then I wouldn't worry. They don't come in new bulbs. My bulbs were all out for the entire summer and that's when they became infected.
