I can't believe it but two of my Paramongaia weberbauriis are 
flowering. One is open and the other is sending up a bud. The flower is 
fantastic! My Hippeastrum aulicum also flowered for the first time.

Paramongaia weberbaurii. This is an amazing flower with a very pleasant 
scent. First flowering for me. These grow outside all winter for me. 
Photos taken January 2004 by Lee Poulsen. The first image is of the bid 
before it opened. The citrus in the second image is to get a sense of 
the size of the flower (it's a mandarin orange my neighbor just picked 
off his tree).…

Hippeastrum aulicum. This is the first time mine has bloomed for me. 
It's kind of nice getting such a pretty Hippeastrum bloom naturally 
outdoors in the middle of winter. Photos taken January 2004 by Lee
