A Double Amaryllis

Among the almost numberless variations that occurred among the specimens in Mr. Burbank's hybrid amaryllis colony were some that produced double rows of petals. Here is one that might readily become the progenitor of a race of amaryllis in which the petals altogether take the place of the reproductive organs, as is the case with some varieties of double roses and dahlias. Even at the present stage, this is an interesting anomaly.
