~~Double Elegance by AnyMotion ~ Amaryliis~~

from the windowsill "catwalk" :-)) Amaryllis / Ritterstern (Hippeastrum) - Much better Large On Black in a pot at the window Part II of the Amaryllis series from the "kitchen studio".

Puya mirabilis  the quickest to bloom – about a year after planting. Elegant, flaring, lime green bells held in fuzzy purple-grey calyxes – up to 15 per stem – are nicely displayed on stiff upright 3’ stems. Compact & carefree foliar rosettes like a mop-like haircut to only 10-12” tall & 20” across. Bolivian native. Refreshingly unusual in any well drained garden or container! Like all Puyas, it’s very tough, drought tolerant, deer resistant & attracts hummingbirds!

Specializing in rare and unusual annual and perennial plants, including cottage garden heirlooms and hard to find California native wildflowers.
