RE: AMaryllis

Both of my amaryllis have two bloom stalks.  The 'Double Record has 5 blooms
each stalk.  The 'Red Lion' appears to have 3 blooms on one stalk and two on
the other.  It is the first year I've had it.  The odd thing is that 'Double
Record' has no leaves!  'Red Lion' has 7 leaves for one stalk and no leaves
for the other.  I think it's a bit confused.  LOL!!!  It's blooms are going
to be a show stopper, I'm sure!   I can't really plant mine outside or leave
them outside except in the summer.  They just wouldn't survive.

I planted mine in a semi-shade area and had blooms for 4-5 years.  I haven't
looked to see if anything is coming up yet...usually see them when the earth
is warmer.
