Three words: OH - MY - GOD!
I'm with you on that of "only a hippeastrum could pull off these colors" I totally agree!

Enjoy the beauty.

Very worth the trip over to look! I love the hot pink stamen. Reminds me of my Pink Surprise. I hope Brendan makes some bulblets. Oh! I still owe you for that Jewel. I'll email you later and tell you what I have "sleeping" and ready to mail. You can see if there is anything you want or we can just wait and see if they are selling anything in Manhattan that you want me to grab for you.

Thanks, guys-- yes this one is really something. Like lizalily mentioned in her post re Brendan's flower, it is a smaller bloom. Its about 5 inches across, 6 inches tall.

PR I will definitely save pollen! I don't grow seeds but I will have it available to anyone who wants some.

Jodi-- this is OFFICIALLY my first pink amaryllis. How's that for news! LOL I do have an apple blossom but it was a NOID so I had no idea what I got. But I willingly wanted this one. So glad I went for it. I also bought Gervase in co-order with PhoenixRyan-- so I guess pink is officially in my repertoire. Oh yeah...and Rozetta. LOL

Hi everybody!

Ryan, welcome to having (and loving) pink amaryllis :-)!
Has your Gervase bloomed already? If you haven't seen Gervase's flowers in real, but only in pictures, you'll be nicely surprised. It is really very special, all flowers being different in color distribution on the petals. It reminds me of candy. I just love it and i think so will you, enjoy!

Well... I think any guy willing to accept pink is a manly man! I mean, why are guys the only ones chastised for sporting anything in pink? It's a testament to your confidence level, Ryan!

Plus... it's only a flower, and it's not like you haven't already admitted you garden! :-)

Can't wait to see photos of your Gervase!
