Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003. Love the outdoor life, gardening and sailing especially. View my profile

'Exotic Star' - Amaryllis, Hippeastrum

This post 'Exotic Star' - Amaryllis, Hippeastrum was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius-Lindhe in the blog Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden

Winter flowers - My January blooms on the windowsills are all the different Amaryllises or should I call them by their botanical name, Hippeastrums

This one is called Exotic Star  (Gracilis Amayllis - Hippeastrum) and it sure looks very Exotic, don't you agree? I planted this bulb in late October and just before Christmas the first flower opened and revealed it's Exotic beauty. It is now the 2nd of January and it is still 'in floribus'





"For many years there was confusion amongst botanists over the generic names Amaryllis and Hippeastrum, one result of which is that the common name "amaryllis" is mainly used for cultivars of this genus, which are widely used as indoor flowering bulbs. The generic name Amaryllis applies to bulbs from South Africa, usually grown outdoors." Wikipedia

So beautiful! I don't know where is something wrong, but when I try open your Greenhouseblogg my firewall don't allow to open it - program says, there is malware in your blogg...?!?

Inkivääri - Det är vissa som inte kan se den. Jag har en dator på jobbet som också ger det meddelandet, lite mysko. Jag tror det beror på vad man har för virusskydd. Norton fungerar det utmärkt. Tack för att du hörde av dig.

Nämen, nu blir jag alldeles förbryllis - en polkagrisrandig amaryllis!

Underbara bilder :-)

God fortsättning på det nya året!

'Exotic Star' is a perfect name for her Tyra. I ahhve just treated myself to 'Mont Blanc' - just have to find a pot to plant her in.
