If I had to pick the Amaryllis in my collection that had the largest bloom ~ hands down it would be 'Clown.'
I actually got my tape measure out (so that you wouldn't think I was bluffing) and measured 8+ inches in diameter!
That's a full 2" larger than 'Razzle Dazzle' which also happens to be blooming now. I set up a comparison shot so you could see for yourself:
I know I don't have to explain which is which!
Pretty impressive, right? (not to take anything away from 'Razzle Dazzle' ~ I'm fond of all my "babies!")
Lucky me, there are three enormous bloom stalks that emerged from 'Clown' ~ two opening now & the third close behind. It makes for one gigantic bouquet of red & white deliciousness:
The perfect early Valentine gift...
I'm particularly partial to the two blooms above that opened "back-to-back."
A waterfall of loveliness....
We'll see if it gets any better ~ my bulbs have been slow this year but finally I have about five more buds waiting in the wings. Maybe they'll all bloom together for a big "finale?" That would be a great way to end winter, wouldn't it?
