There is something about spots on flowers that intrigues me.
That’s why I love my spotted Amaryllis, Foxgloves, Tiger lilies and Stargazer lilies so much.
Spots on petals are not like dots of paint. Pigmented cells are in groups.
This gives the spots depth.
This Spotlight Amaryllis has very well-defined spots due to the contrast of red on white.
All four of my new varieties are gorgeous this year. I hope they thrive in the garden.

Lovely close-ups of the red spots – and the microscope image is fascinating. I’ve learnt something new – thanks! 🙂
