Plant Information

Each kit comes in a copper colored pot with carrying handles, plus liner and potting soil. The jumbo bulb in this one is Red Lion, a deep cherry red that grows 20-24" tall and will produce at least two stems of flowers. This one is a great quality gift, everything is packed in the pot, with a full-color top label which also carries the simple instructions. So even if your gift recipient is an old hand at amaryllis, you'll know they've never received a kit quite like this one before.

Ever grown an amaryllis inside the house? It's a snap. There can be rain, cold or snow outside, but all you do is water this "magic lily", and it zooms into growth. In just a few days, the stems arise, and in a few weeks the enormous flowers begin to open--huge lily blooms up to 8" across! (Our kit contains a bulb that will produce at least two stems, each with 3 or 4 flowers!) Then you have the big show for over a month. It's just 6 to 10 weeks from first watering to full bloom.

Note about Gifts: If you are ordering gifts that will require shipping to more than one address, please create separate orders for each address, since shipping for each must be recorded separately.

Quantity Discounts and Corporate Gifts: If you'd like 25 or more kits, please call (877) 309-7333 for special quantity discounts on this product.

I gave this as a gift to my daughter, who had never grown an amaryllis before. She was very successful with it, and I was fortunate enough to be visiting her when the buds opened. It was spectacular, and our whole family enjoyed the beautiful presentation on her breakfast table.

I ordered several of these as holiday gifts. Two bulb kits had shoots when received. Recipients reported that one bloomed well, the other bloomed marginally and was short of stature. One kit failed to bloom at all - the bulb was rotten and moldy. The final kit took forever to grow, and had three smallish blooms on one stalk - no foliage. I was not happy with any of the bulbs that I received this year from American Meadows. Two plastic pot amaryllis kits had similar issues - stunted growth, small blooms and lack of foliage. I also ordered a Red Lion and a White Christmas bulbs that each produced just a single stalk with three blooms and no foliage. These were planted before Thanksgiving and both just bloomed (Feb). I've had beautiful results in the past with American Meadow bulbs, but this year was a real disappointment.

        I purchased 3 Amaryllis Growing Kits for Christmas Gifts as I do each year.
        This year, the bulbs were slow growing but the results were worth the wait. The bulbs were MAGNIFICENT in size and BRILLIANT in color. The gift recipients were THRILLED!

        Amaryllis Kit very disappointing

        Comments about American Meadows Red Lion Amaryllis Kit:

        I was very disappointed in these amaryllis plants. I ordered them as gifts and many of my friends told me the bulbs had mold on them. I saw pictures of the plants and the growth was stunted. Some of them only got about 6" tall. Others said the bulbs fell off right as it was ready to bloom. Could be the reason these were on sale when I purchased them. I wish they would have told me these bulbs were damaged. I never would have give them as gifts to people. Very embarrassing.

          Beautiful, bright red. I use my amaryllis bulbs to decorate for the post-Christmas blahs. Everyone finds their red color and their velvety flower to get their well deserved "WOW". Plus this year one of my bulbs did not bloom and American sent a replacement - pronto!

            I rec'd my first one as a gift. It was so striking that I purchased two for out of town family members for Christmas. One was delivered during the snow storm and was received frozen. One call and American Meadows took care of it and sent them a replacement immediately. I appreciated this because as the giver I did not know till later that this had happended. Thank you for making good on your product.
            The photo image included is beautiful but not even at its full growth. It was truly amazing and lasted so long.

                  Q & A

                  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).

                  Find Your Planting Zone:
