There are a few bulbs that I can remember approximately where they are in their flowerbed homes, but I sometimes forget and accidentally dig one up. They are easy to tuck back in fortunately.
The other day, I was wondering through the garden pulling weeds and cleaning up and discovered there's a lovely flower smiling at me that I had totally forgotten about.
Such is the case with Amaryllis belladonna. I don't even remember planting the bulbs, although I do have a vague recollection of seeing the foliage in spring and wondering what it was?!?
I dislike tags in the garden, but for some things a mental placeholder just isn't enough any more, especially with the early onset of my "Sometimers" disease.
Amaryllis belladonna (Belladonna Lily) — A true amaryllis native to South Africa.
It is a bulbous plant with dull green leaves that are up to 1 ½’ tall by 0.75” wide.
Leaves appear in early spring and then die back. They are hardy from Zones 7-10.
