My amaryllis were a wash this year. Not much in the way of blooms, if any. So it was, until 'La Paz' started to bloom. The first stem appeared. Late. Only two flowers on the stem. Suddenly four more appeared. Then another. Six stems. Count 'em (one hidden). They won't all bloom at the same time, so it won't be as impressive of a photograph. But I'd rather have a longer bloom season than just a nice photo.
