The Amaryllis Flower

The Amaryllis Flower

Amaryllis

 

The Amaryllis is a very large flowering plant most often associated with Christmas and they are often given as gifts. But be warned, this flower is toxic to cats and some other small pets.

Since many florists sell these at holiday time to be given as gifts, what is often overlooked is that there are over 36 varieties of this flower in different colors and combination of colors. 

The white ones with the reddish pink edge are very striking as are the soft pink and white combination. 

I don't have any other photos of this flower, because I have only had the camera when I saw the red variety but one day I will find some others to share. 

The flower is a very intense red and the texture is almost velvet like. This specimen was rather perfect and I thought it made for a good photo to share.
