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 Minerva, a glamorous red and white amaryllis bulb that will grow 20-24" tall and 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.

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.

    Comments about American Meadows Minerva Amaryllis Kit:

    We planted this in the pot that came with it and kept it out on the patio. When it bloomed, we cut the flowers and put them in a vase in the house. The flowers lasted a long time. This spring we planted it in the yard. We know by experience that they we come up year after year and spread.

          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).
