This beautiful bulb is in full bloom now..The Amaryllis has a very slight smell...not enough to put into a perfume. This flower's gift is in its dramatic size and the wonderful red orange color with the spectacular green center. The six point white star burst is lovely in itself. What a sweet smiling face to wake up to this morning. It is growing in my garden alongside roses, cannas, johnny jump ups, and many annual flowering plants. What a beauty!
