A few weeks ago I planted this bulb and have left it in the living room to grow. My mother and I bought it when she was here this winter. Today I needed a pick me up so I brought it into the kitchen to sit on the kitchen table. I love amaryllis, I do not think this one has a smell to it. My mom had some beautiful ones up at the ranch where she grew up. They were my favorites. They had a wonderful sweet smell. My dad would pick bundles of the to bring me for my birthday. What a wonderful gift. Today my Red Lion amaryllis has been a wonderful gift too.
