Amaryllis

We received a kit with the bulb, pot and soil in it for Christmas. Who knew we would have so much pleasure from just one little bulb.


Amaryllis is native to South Africa and became popular in Europe in the 18th century. The name is derived from a shepherdess in ancient Greek poetry. These vibrant flowers are often associated with the winter holidays due to their blooming cycle.


To grow Amaryllis, plant the bulb in well-draining soil, leaving the top third exposed. Water sparingly until growth appears, then water more regularly. Place in bright, indirect light
