The scoop on Amaryllis Merry Christmas

In addition to its gorgeous 8" solid red blooms, what makes this amaryllis a favorite is its height, or rather lack there of. Merry Christmas has been bred for stouter, shorter, 12-14" flower stems; proportions perfect for centerpiece roles during holiday meals. Also, it's one of the fastest amaryllis to bloom and happiest at temperatures of 75 or even a few degrees warmer. Petite, speedy and beautiful!

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

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.)
