My amaryllis finally bloomed and it was so worth the wait.

 It’s the perfect  after holiday pick me up!

 Amaryllis are the easiest of flowering bulbs to bloom.  It’s botanical name is Hippastrume and it is now a popular Christmas time flower that originated in South American tropical regions.  They are not winter hardy bulbs but they are fun to force in the wintertime to have holiday blooms.

  1. I have a customer that has a bunch of these along the house in a descent sized bed. They look amazing every time they bloom. It is worth it. :-)

  2. No Amaryllis blooms for me this year. :( That’s what I get for procrastinating.
