Comments about High Country Gardens Papilio Amaryllis Bulb:
I purchased this long, desired bulb and was thrilled with it once it arrived. I haven't the foggiest why it has not produced anything other than two leaves to date. The instructions stated that it was much slower to take off than other amaryllis...but this is a bit much. So far there is still no sign of a blossom stalk, at all. I have followed the instructions to the letter. I am a Master Gardener so it isn't as if I do not understand the importance of soil, aeration, watering and sunlight. I am at a loss. Disappointed!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Slow going but still hopeful...
I'm aware this is a slow to get started bulb. After almost 2 months I'd think with the care it's getting it would have more to show. I'm concerned there won't be a blossom at all this year. Grrrr!
