These bulbs were selected while blooming in August 2020.  These are blooming size bulbs.  These are selected from the collection of the late Bill Welch (Bill the Bulb Baron) in California.  This is likely the best and largest collection of amaryllis belladonna (naked lady liliies) in the world.  Salmon colors are very rare, with only a dozen or so bulbs available any year.  These all have yellow-orange undertones, but the intensity of the pink color varies.

Please note that the color may vary based on growing conditions (soil, temperature, etc).  These were when blooming in coastal California.  A colder or hotter climate might effect their coloration.  Please look at the different pictures to see how the color varies according to the camera and lighting conditions.

Amaryllis Belladonna are highly recommended for those with mild winters and relatively dry summers. Folks in other climates can grow them in large pots if they are willing to do the extra work. Grow outside in zones 8-10 with mulch. The dutch will sell these as cold hardy to zone 6, but they lie.  Possibly they could be more cold hardy if they are planted deeply or in a sheltered location.  It is also possible to grow these amaryllis in pots, but I would recommend larger pots for the big bulbs and roots. Water occasionally whenever they are not receiving adequate rainfall.
