Christmas Flowering Single Amaryllis

Hippeastrum. Amaryllis are special, magical bulbs. Nothing brings more joy, color and song to our spirits than Amaryllis flowers as winter's long, dark days approach. Amaryllis are the art and soul of winter. If you want your Amaryllis to bloom in time for the holidays, select from among our Christmas Flowering Amaryllis from South Africa. Grown in the southern hemisphere, these Amaryllis are more eager to pop out of dormancy than those grown in the Netherlands in the northern hemisphere. They may be potted in October for gorgeous flowers in just four to six weeks, right on time for the holidays.

Christmas Flowering Amaryllis are classified as Symphony, Sonata or Sonatini varieties according to their flower size and height. Symphony varieties are the largest, yielding big 6" to 8 3/4", saucer shaped flowers on 14" to 18" stems. Sonata Amaryllis yield slightly smaller 5" to 6" flowers on 14" to 16" stems. Sonatini Amaryllis are the most delicate, species-like varieties with 2 3/4" to 4" flowers on 8" to 14" stems. Most bulbs yield two, and sometimes even three, successive flowering stems with multiple flowers. Sword-like foliage may appear before, during or after flowering. Please note that the normal plant heights detailed for each variety depend on the indoor ambient temperature and amount of sunlight. Harvest bulb size: 18 cm (unless otherwise noted). Christmas Flowering Amaryllis have been bred to create well-proportioned plants and large flowers from smaller bulbs. After harvest, they shrink naturally as they dry, and plump back up once they are potted and watered. We start shipping Christmas Flowering Amaryllis once we receive them from the annual harvest in South Africa in late September. Our Christmas Flowering Amaryllis bulbs are bareroot: it is the bulb only for planting in your own containers.
