When we used to report when Amaryllis belladonna was starting to 
bloom Southern California was usually ahead of us. And now it appears 
central Indiana is ahead as well. My Scadoxus puniceus is in various 
stages of breaking dormancy including some that show nothing yet and 
others with the beginnings of the leaf or flower bud. In other years 
they have bloomed earlier, so perhaps all those days we had 
rain/overcast conditions have slowed them down.
