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).

Plant Information
20-24" tall. The trumpet-like blossoms of ‘Sweet Star’ Amaryllis are sure to warm your heart with soft pink hues and endless charm. Easy to force for bright blooms all winter long, these sensual blooms are so romantic you might want to time them for a Valentine’s Day gift-giving – be sure to pot them at least 6-12 weeks ahead in mid-December. With long, strong stems, ‘Sweet Star’ Amaryllis also makes a gorgeous bouquet. Cut stems when the first flower begins to open and show a flush of color. Our Amaryllis Bulb Kit makes it easy to grow these fabulous blooms, including simple instructions, soil mix, a high-quality bulb, and a stylish tin pot, not to mention all the trimmings you need for gift-giving. Thick foliage tends to grow toward light, so rotate the container regularly to keep plants well balanced. With proper care and storage, amaryllis bulbs can be forced to bloom again and again.
