A surefire source of vibrant color, Amaryllis are generally grown as a lovely accent over the holidays. They are a favorite gift because they can add reliable beauty when grown in containers. Their lush, tropical blooms add a scintillating accent to the holiday home, which makes them great choices to give as living gifts . . . or to keep for yourself! Grown indoors they will bloom in about 8 weeks, then after they go dormant they can be brought out every winter to bloom again. In tropical climates they can grow right in the garden. Make the holidays merry and bright with this extraordinary winter flower!
