Amaryllis

Hippeastrum
Barbados Lily

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. Amaryllis Bulbs can be purchased pre-planted or you can do the planting yourself. The larger and fatter the plant bulbs, the more flowers an Amaryllis produces. The brightly colored flowers  come in red, orange, white, pink, and salmon. Some new varieties even have striped flowers.

Amaryllis plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Learn more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants
