For heightened drama and jewel tone allure, look to amaryllis Benfica. This plant's blooms are a dark, rich red that reminds one of velvet, with depth and texture. Had to capture with a camera, but the eye sees the difference between this and a bright holiday red in a flash.
Tip: all amaryllis bulbs are not the same. Larger bulbs produce more flower stalks and more blooms per stalk. Get big, healthy, carefully held bulbs - optimum temperature, humidity and light conditions - here and enjoy truly stunning flowering amaryllis. (Note: different varieties mature to different bulb sizes. All the bulbs here are large to very large for the individual cultivar.)
