Amaryllis / Hippeastrum spp.
Velvety, saucer-shaped, massive blooms with deep red pointy petals inlaid with shadowy burgundy stripes and throats.
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. See our Bowood Plant Care Guide "Planting Amaryllis Bulbs" for potting information and after-bloom care.
