Grows to an average of 20 inches in height. Flowering time is 6-8 weeks.
The Amaryllis is a beautiful, fascinating flowering bulb. It is not hardy in places that have extended periods of frost, having originated in tropical regions. They make good container plants and can be delightful cut flowers. The major Dutch breeders have spent the last two centuries hybridizing these specimens to bring us the flower we know and love. Todays cultivars have stalks ranging from about 12" to 24" with each stalk having four to six flowers. Typically, a bulb will produce two stalks in a blooming season. With care, these bulbs will bloom every year for many years.
