Amaryllis, with its beautiful clusters of fragrant blossoms, is a sure holiday favorite. Few bulbs are easier to grow than amaryllis and few bloom with greater exuberance and beauty. The plant produces large, colorful bell-shaped flowers, with red and white being among the most popular colors.
Care for amaryllis by placing it in a cool (mid-60°F location with bright, indirect light. When watering amaryllis, avoid soaking the soil and don't wet the parts of the bulb above the soil. Once established, amaryllis are drought-resistant and may only need to be irrigated during prolonged drought periods. When flowers fade, trim the stem down to within 1" of the neck of the bulb. Hardiness zones range from 9-11.
