Additional Information

Amaryllis

Originally from Central and South America, amaryllis grow outdoors in Zones 9–10. In frostier climes we plant these magnificent easy-to-grow hybrid marvels indoors and enjoy blooms during the winter.

Many people stagger their planting times to prolong the season (tip: bulbs from Peru tend to bloom earlier than those from Holland).

If you don’t plant the bulbs right away, store them in a cool dry dark place. Amaryllis bulbs generally produce two or more flower stalks, each bearing 3-4 blooms. Remove the pollen-bearing anthers for a longer bloom time and a neater tabletop. With simple care and proper soil nutrients, amaryllis can return year after year.

Amaryllis often don’t arrive here until mid-October; your entire order may be held until their arrival.
