Spotlight’s Spots

There is something about spots on flowers that intrigues me.

Spotlight Amaryllis

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.
