Amaryllis Flowers and Bulbs
Amaryllis are beautiful bell-shaped flowers that bloom at the end of a tall, leafless stalk for a bold yet elegant look sure to make an impression. Frequently red and white, these large, colorful blossoms can be a simple but powerful expression of love or affection. Or try a red and white amaryllis arrangement around the holidays as an alternative to the popular poinsettia!
What Are Amaryillis Plants?
Amaryllis flowers are commonly a combination of red and white, with six large petals blooming outward from a trumpet-shaped cone. One popular and romantic variation features vibrant red petals with white streaks reaching up out of the central cone, though there are also single-color varieties. Pre-planted amaryllis bulbs sprout a thin stem that ranges from 4-10 inches high, though larger bulbs may sprout more than one flower. Amaryllis plants are sometimes called "March lilies" for their tendency to flower around the end of winter and beginning of spring.
Try an Amaryllis Arrangement for the Holidays
With an elegant shape that allows each flower to show off its full, radiant petals, amaryllis are quickly becoming a popular holiday flower. The thin stem and small base makes the red and white variations a good alternative to poinsettias, especially if you want to add some Christmas cheer to a more condensed space. Amaryllis bulbs are planted in the winter and are able to bloom indoors with some basic care, making them a great winter flower gift for the amateur gardener in your life. Whoever you choose to have an amaryllis delivered to will get to watch the plant grow day by day until it blooms. Best of all, the bulbs can be replanted to bloom again the next winter/spring.
