While away for a few day in Mount Coolum, this week, I snapped a couple of photos of these clusters of perky blooms.
Grown as houseplants in the UK, I was fascinated by the strength and beauty of these Winter flowers. The climate in south east Queensland, Australia suits outdoor Springtime flowering.
A brief Internet search revealed the following words to describe amaryllis’ symbolism: Strength, determination, beauty, success after a struggle, and love.
I have chosen the amaryllis to commemorate our wedding day, happy sixth anniversary my beloved xxx

Happy Anniversary. Amaryllis is a lovely flower to celebrate your marriage.
Thank you 😊
I second Eileen, although belatedly.
By the way, the genus Clivia also belongs to the Amaryllidaceae family. I have a variegated Clivia whose variegation is of the type called “Buddha Light”. To be more precise, this specimen of mine is rarer because it is the special variant form called “Starlight Buddha Light” with additional green dots on top of the golden and creamy white variegation over its green and lighter green areas of the foliage.
I have not come across Clivia, thank you for sharing this with me.
Here’s an article explaining all of the different variegations:
There is a very large specialist Clivia nursery at Ipswich, which you and your partner can visit. If you would like me to come along for advice, I shall oblige.
That’s amaryllis. One of my most favorite flowers.
Indeed many happy returns with 6 years more and then some.
Six years already!
Congratulations to you both. x
Congratulations Robert x
