Brent and Becky had this on special a few weeks ago,and it intrigues me. 4 of the 5 bulbs came up, and the first two are blooming. Is is called a Mexican Amaryllis, but the name is Sprklelia formosissimo.

OMG. I think I may be moving to your zone now...lol! What a fantastic flower! So exotic. Just imagine how beautiful they will be in a couple of years once they put off lots of blooms!!
Thanks for the pic Kay!

It's very unusual but still lovely. It has a tropical feel to it. Nice!

Thanks for looking.

Two of the four have bloomed, and they just put up the spike and bloomed. It is such a bright red. I think maybe something White might make it pop even more.

Wow, that is some unusual looking flower. Looks like it came from outer space to me.
