Amaryllis is by far Linda Mattson's favorite flower, so it's no surprise the Green Bay green thumb grows more than one each year. She often gets her bulb kits from a local garden store and just follows the instructions and uses the soil provided. She saves her bulbs from year to year and occasionally gets lucky with blooms the following year. In addition to this one, she also grew a red one ? six blooms on each. Her only regret? That those beautiful blooms don't last longer.
