The scoop on Amaryllis Chico

Mention the word "amaryllis" and this flower form is NOT what comes to mind. Chico is an exotic, a willowy member of the cybister group, amaryllis known for slender, curled petals in fanciful airbrushed shades. Ideal for modern homes where classic amaryllis may be too traditional, this variety always garners notice and raves. Fancy looking, but no diva when it comes to growing requirements.

Why Grow Amaryllis?

  • Amaryllis flowers are showy; bringing over-the-top color to holiday decorating and winter windowsills
  • Hybrid amaryllis offer choices in red, pink, orange, cranberry, bi-colors and more
  • See our growing instructions (link at right) for super easy blooms, even for beginners
  • Flowering amaryllis are thoughtful, engaging holiday gifts
  • For those in warmer climates, amaryllis are also outstanding in flowerbeds where they develop into giant showy clumps and bloom with vigor in the spring

Note: These Chico bulbs grew small this year (Mother Nature does that sometimes), so these bulbs are not as large as usual. They'll still bloom beautifully however, and this is your chance to pick up a fancy variety at a great price.

This is a Leafari staff tested and recommended variety.
