Amaryllis are one of the easiest bulbs to bring to bloom. Payne’s just received a shipment of the biggest and best quality bulbs available. Try your hand at planting these bulbs indoors in pots NOW so that you will have them in bloom for Christmas, New Year’s or Valentines.
Once the bulb has bloomed, it can be kept in the pot and allowed to grow like any other houseplant. This will allow the Amaryllis to bloom on its own cycle as opposed to being forced to bloom for the holidays.
The Amaryllis originated in South America’s tropical regions and has the botanical name Hippeastrum. The spectacular flowers and ease with which they can be brought to bloom make Amaryllis popular and in demand worldwide. Amaryllis come in many colors including various shades of red, white, pink, salmon and orange. There are also many striped and multicolored varieties, usually combining shades of pink or red with white.
