Here is another story. I have always been fascinated with the Amaryllis flower. I have always ordered them and enjoyed the great bloom the first year then the second year not so nice and maybe no bloom for a couple more years after that. So 3 years ago I decided to plant the bulbs on the south side of the house where my cannas continue to come back year after year. For the last 2 years they have come up and grew but this year is the first time they have bloomed. Actually this is the only one that survived this last winter. I guess it thought it better bloom or else. I am so happy it did. It is right next to the cannas that have been living through the winter for the last 5 years.
