Plant Information

Our exclusive kits feature dutch-grown, jumbo-sized amaryllis bulb and mess-free growing media. Each amaryllis will produce multiple blooms on sturdy stalks, yielding at least two stems of flowers. With extra attention paid to packaging, these readymade gifts are perfect for thanking holiday hosts, or brightening up winter for everyone on your gift list. We have loved watching our customers start annual family traditions of gifting and forcing amaryllis together each winter!

Amaryllis is one of the easiest flowers to grow indoors. No matter the cold winter weather outside, your amaryllis will bloom and thrive, spreading a feeling of joyous springtime cheer indoors. Simply follow the provided instructions and watch your amaryllis flowers open into huge lily-like blooms - up to 8" wide! Within 6 to 12 weeks from first watering to full bloom, your amaryllis will put on a big, colorful show for over a month. You can also save your bulb as it goes dormant, for fresh blooms the following season

Planting & Care

Getting Started
When Your Bulbs Arrive

Open the box right away and check the contents

Choose a standard size flower pot, so the large bulb has approximately 1" around the sides and at the bottom (these bulbs do not need much root space). Amaryllis do not need specific soil, however we suggest using soil, or a mixture of soil, peat and perlite (do not use pine bark, as it may encourage rot). Place the bulb so the top inch or so of the shoulders sticks up out of the soil (see below)

Shoulders above soil
Amaryllis can get top-heavy when they bloom, so a sturdy pot is best

Watering

Water very sparingly until the sprout is well out of the bulb. When first planted, place the pot in a sunny , and add "bottom heat" if possible. Many people do this by placing the pot on a radiator. Once the sprout appears, water regularly, but do not overwater. Overwatering is the quickest way to kill amaryllis. Your amaryllis will grow quickly and produce its spectacular huge flowers with minimal care.

Remember to keep turning the pot regularly to make the stalk grow straight, as they have a tendency to grow toward the light. Once the bulb is flowing, it is best to keep the plant out of direct sunlight. Your bulb will produce several flowers on each stalk and most will grow two or three stalks. Remove each flower as it fades.

Amaryllis Outdoors (Zones 9 - 11)

Outdoor Amaryllis

Since these bulbs are tropical (native to South America), they can be grown beautifully outdoors in very warm and frost-free zones. This means from southern Georgia down through Florida, south Texas, and much of the Pacific coast. Planting time in these areas is usually September or October, and if the bed is well-cared for, the bulbs will stay in the ground and flower for years. If you'd like to propagate your amaryllis, our friends at Floridata.com have good Instructions.

Aftercare:

After winter bloom, if you want to rebloom your amaryllis, it's quite simple.  When blooms fade, cut off the tubular flower stems near the top of the bulb, leaving the foliage to continue growing.

Water as usual and apply water-soluble fertilizer every four weeks. Once spring arrives and frost is past, sink the Amaryllis pot in the garden in a sunny place. Continue to fertilize. At the end of the summer when frost threatens, simply pull the pot out of the ground, wash it out, and take it inside, and allow it to dry out completely in a warm dry place like a utility room.  Once the leaves are dead and the bulb dry (usually 5 to 6 weeks), the bulb is ready for repotting.  Simply cut off the dry leaves, and repot your bulb in fresh potting soil and start the growing cycle again.

Bought this for the first time hoping it would bloom during the Christmas holiday. It arrived healthy and ready to grow. All I did was put it in the soil mixture for the pot, water it, and pay attention to it! It bloomed right on time and continued to bloom for a couple weeks. It was gorgeous.
I'll do it again next year!

Not Apple Blossom

The amaryllis was not Apple Blossom which is what I ordered. It is red and took over 8 weeks to bloom.

        I absolutely love American Meadow's amaryllis! I won't even look at any other. Over the years I've accumulated quite a few. The bulbs always produce large, multi-flowered blooms. I've even had a couple that sent up another stem after the first died out! These were outside though. The kits make wonderful gifts as well!

              I bought two of these just before Christmas and the worst snowfalls we've seen. The bulbs arrived quickly and were easy to start and maintain. I loved that I had them inside on a window sill and still they grew and bloomed brilliantly. These are perfect for everyone from newbies, kids through to expert gardeners/landscapers. Yes, I could buy some nicer pots to plant them in as they came with plastic pots just like the image depicts but I would have selected different pots. Go for these bulbs as they grew fantastically with several blooms each.

Really enjoyed the instructions on how to plant. They were very clear and helped her feel as if she could grow it without a problem. Thanks!!!

                    Plant With These:

                    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
