Amaryllis HIPPEASTRUM OR AMARYLLIS
Amaryllis are raised for one purpose–their majestic blooms! General- ly sold for indoor use, they may be planted outside in Zones 9 to 10, which is why we sell them bulk (perfectly clean, of course!) Our wide selection includes many of the most recent introductions featuring advancements in colors, color patterns, height, bloom size and floriferousness. The bulbs bloom six to eight weeks after potting. It’s easy to store them until the frigid days of January and February when the landscape is depressingly bleak. Just place them in a cool, dark location (but don’t use a plastic bag). In Wisconsin, we like to have amaryllis bulbs blooming as late as March! A 6" to 10" diameter pot with good drainage, potting soil, good light and water is all that’s needed. With this minimal assistance, they’ll usually produce two and often three 16" to 20" stalks (shorter varieties are noted) topped with three to six large 7" to 10" trumpet blooms six to eight weeks after potting. While blooming or shortly thereafter, the long, deep green leaves emerge and fan outward from the bulb. Complete planting directions included with the bulbs is our guarantee for beautiful blooms.

MINIATURE HYBRID Size: 24cm/up
Don’t be misled by the term “miniature” as these amaryllis produce 2 (or even 3) stalks to a height of 20". When the flowers open, however, you’ll see the difference. The miniature trumpets are more compact, less formal, gently ruffled on the flowers’ edge, and only one-half the width of large-flowering amaryl- lis hybrids. Three bulbs do nicely in an 8" to 10" pot, or for 1 bulb we recommend a 6" pot.
