Gardening Guide Amaryllis River2u.com
Overview
Amaryllis bulbs produce wonderful indoor plants that have large trumpet shaped flowers. They come in shades of red, white, green, apricot and pink. Heights range from 12 to 36 inches. The bulbs can be planted in pots; amaryllis also make beautiful, long lasting cut flowers. If properly treated, they will rebloom year after year. The following should be considered when buying amaryllis bulbs:
  • Decide what color you want. Red and white are traditional during the winter holiday season. Pink and apricot light up a room in the late winter.
  • Consider the size. Miniature amaryllis produce numerous blooms. The larger varieties make a spectacular statement.
  • Make sure all bulbs are dry and firm.
Plant amaryllis bulbs from October through April for bloom in 6 to 12 weeks. Cover of the bulb with soil, leaving of the bulb and its neck exposed. Water sparingly until a bud forms. Taller varieties may need to be staked.
