Two sturdy stems appear almost simultaneously with typically six intense red flowers per stem, hence the name 'Double Six'. The blooms measure 7–8in across and four on each stem usually open together, followed by another pair about a week later. Amaryllis bulbs grown in South Africa produce the same large, richly colored blooms as Dutch Amaryllis, but are harvested sooner and are ready for shipment in early October.

The shapely blooms and rich, iridescent colors of Amaryllis light up a cold day like nothing else we know. We carefully prepare these tropical bulbs so they require only room temperatures, regular watering, and bright light to deliver a truly spectacular performance, a process that is great fun to watch.
Our bulbs are guaranteed to produce two flower stems, most with four blooms, and are easily grown on from year to year. South African Amaryllis will bloom 6-8 weeks from arrival.
