The REAL Exotica Bloomed Correctly

The replacement bulb for Amaryllis Exotica has bloomed.

It has the expected color and striations.

The apricot color definitely has a red shimmer in it.

I feel sorry for the original bulb, which will now be stuck with the name,

BLOOMED INCORRECTLY, from now on.

They are both lovely. Both will be cared for, nurtured and loved.

Though only one has a pedigree.
