Zephyranthes flowers

This year the weather has been so hot here along the PNW coast that I took all the pots out of my cold frame in late June. To my pleased surprise, two pots of Zephyranthes bulbs promptly flowered after a week or two of drenching soaks every few days.  I grew these from seeds from PBS after reading about Ina’s success with them, and once I moved them to deep pots they began to put out more leaves. And I assume, began to grow larger bulbs. Now, apparently, 80F plus days with regular soaking were what they needed to decide to flower.

No sign of Amaryllis belladonna shoots yet. 

PNW coast, hot, dry, no rain in sight—one might think I live in southern California.
