One of the easiest of all indoor flowering plants!

Freely bears its magnificent blooms on strong stems!
It's no wonder these magnificent blooms were named after the Greek goddess of love and beauty! The pure white stacked petals of these fully double blooms look as if they've been silkscreened with salmon-pink and display a crisp, pencil-thin picotee outline that adds definition and style. The blooms are further accented by lime-green centers that seem to glow from within. Our quality bulbs produce at least 2 stems with 3 to 4 blooms apiece for a display of grand proportions!

Grow Amaryllis any time of year - just pot the bulbs 6 to 8 weeks before the date you want it to begin blooming! Plant your bulb in a 6- to 8-inch pot or space closer if planting more than one together. Keep about 1/3 to 2/3 of the bulb exposed above the soil, and water it in thoroughly. Unless the soil looks dry, you should not water it again until green shoots appear. When the first growth appears, move the plant into a sunny spot and keep it well-watered until it blooms. Once the blooms open, move it out of direct sunlight to prolong the life of the flowers.

After the blooms pass, place the pot back in a sunny spot and keep watering and feeding it until the leaves turn yellow. (Most Amaryllis remain green for months, their deeply colored, strap-like foliage an attractive addition to the home or office.) When the foliage dies back, stop watering and keep the bulb potted up in a dry, cool place. Let it rest for at least 10 weeks before beginning the process all over again, and re-pot bulbs every 3 to 5 years to keep flowering at a peak.

If you live in a mild climate, Amaryllis will grow beautifully in your garden. Plant the bulbs about 8 inches deep, spacing 6 to 8 inches between plants. Fertilize the soil about 3 weeks after planting. Our top-size bulbs are certain to bloom heavily for many years. Hardy only in zones 8-11, Amaryllis is a long-lived houseplant everywhere in the country.
