Michael Mace wrote -- The Les Hannibal Amaryllis hybrids here are at about the mid-point in their blooming process now. Amaryllis seem to start a bit later for me than they do in most of the Bay Area. I'm not sure why; my neighborhood is a bit warmer and dryer than the rest of the area, and you'd think that would lead to earlier blooms not later ones. My Tigridia pavonia were left in a shady place because I was too lazy to move their large pot. They finished blooming well over a month ago. However, I moved a small pot to a full sun position in spring, and kept it well watered all summer. That pot is just blooming now. In my neighborhood (mid-peninsula, in the hills), A. belladonna is just finishing bloom. David E.
