Amaryllis / Hippeastrum spp.
The classic red, single Amaryllis makes a perfect holiday decoration, especially when combined with paper whites and other light-colored flowers.
Usually blooms 5-8 weeks after planted. Each Amaryllis bulb will produce a succession of two thick stems, 20-24” tall, topped with a bouquet of 4-5 intensely colored, outward-facing flowers. They may be kept for years as a potted houseplant with a leafy summer growth and regular winter bloom. Please see our plant care tip sheet Indoor Flowering Bulbs – Amaryllis for potting information and after-bloom care.
