Amaryllis have large flowers on sturdy stems and can be forced indoors for a festive display of color for the holidays.
Each bulb will eventually send up 3-6 flowers on tall, thick stems. The large flowers may last for several weeks. May be planted as a spring bulb in flowerbeds or forced indoors.
Does best in partial shade and temperatures that don't fall below 30 in the winter if grown outdoors. Indoors, it is an excellent forced bulb for the holidays. Once the blooms start to fade, the stems should be trimmed back and the bulb kept dry until spring planting.
