For some, the festive season means a beautiful poinsettia on display, but for many others, it’s the elegant Amaryllis. Because Amaryllis bulbs need to be planted 8-10 weeks before blooming, now is the time to pick up a bulb that will bring bold colour to your holiday décor. Here are a few great varieties to try:
Glowing pinkish white with raspberry coloured streaks on double blooms.
This exotic variety has large bright lime green and dark red veins for a really unique bloom.
Bright white blooms are feathered and streaked with a vivid cherry red.
So, it’s not really purple, but it is stunning! Blooms are white with fuchsia-pink etched upper petals and pale pink etched lower petals with a dark fuchsia-merlot star.
This exotic variety boasts long narrow petals in a chartreuse, light lime colour. An amazing cutflower, if you could dare to snip it!
