Amaryllis plants are native to the tropical regions of South America. These spectacular bulb plants can be planted from October through the end of April and will bloom from late December to June. With proper after-bloom care, an Amaryllis plant flowers year after year. It makes one to several stalks crowned by red flowers in spring. Amaryllis is the perfect choice for adding a touch of exotic beauty to any home. The vibrant, trumpet-shaped flowers rise on 1- to 2-foot leafless stalks, bringing bold color to gardens and living spaces alike. Amaryllis bulbs can be purchased bare or planted, and offer a spectacular show of blooms in shades of red, pink, and white. These perennial herbs provide a majestic display of flowers for months and are ideal for gardeners of all skill levels. Brighten your home or garden with these stunningly beautiful sun-lovers. 'Large blooms' last for 3-4 weeks in full sun or bright shade and are drought-tolerant when the soil stays moist during the growing season. Plant bulbs neck up, 6 to 12 inches apart, in a humus-rich, well-draining soil mix for best results. Hardy in Zones 7-10, these plants will survive winter with proper mulching in cooler climates. For any humus rich, well-drained soil in a sunny spot. During dormancy keep tubers drier and at a minimum of some 15°C throughout the year. Seedlings are fast growing and may reach flowering size after two years only under appropriate conditions.
