The scoop on Amaryllis Ruby Star

Aptly named, Ruby Star blooms in a deep shade of ruby red accented with lighter stripes along the petal centers and most pronounced on the bottom. To add a jaunty little flair, the top petal often grows with a tiny, endearing curl on the end. This cultivar was developed about 10 years ago and has been gathering devotees ever since. Grow it once, you'll see why. Large blooms, medium stem length.

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.)

Planted amaryllis are top dressed with natural moss and sent with easy growing instructions. Feel free to add a gift message as you check out. Then just tell us where to deliver your selection!

This is a Leafari grown, tested and recommended variety.
