HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

CC johnson from Bridgewater MA.
"Hello Gorgeous" greets me every morning looking more resplendent daily. Three bulbs planted in an heirloom container in November have been and still are producing "glorious" flowers daily. Untill just recently I have taken pictures daily and e-mailed to friends this joyfull show of blooms.
Ads2011 from Colchester, CT
This was so simple to enjoy. Put some river rocks in a large glass bowl. Put the bulb in the center added some water and it started to grow. just check your water level every few days and that's it sit back and enjoy. Mine bloomed for weeks! I will be ordering this one again. Fantastic plant. I am ordering 2 one for me and one for my mom (who just loved mine)
The Absent Gardener from Bluffton, SC
This Amarylis is exquisite. Mine produced three stalks with six flower heads each. The display is simply stunning. My only regret is that I didn't have proper staking to prevent the colossal blooms from breaking. Even so, I simply stuck them in a vase and they've lasted for weeks. Perhaps Whiteflower would consider selling them with optional supports next year! I'll definitely be buying more, especially since they do well in my zone 8(b) garden!
Picture This from Gettysburg, SD
I planted five bulbs in individual containers and grouped them with candles for a silver and white winter centerpiece. They have been blooming for four weeks and still have buds just starting to open. Each bulb is producing from 8-10 very large full blooms!! I hope to carry them over the summer outside to rebuild the bulb and use again next year.
How to Grow Amaryllis
Bulb size: 28-32 cm
GROWING AMARYLLIS OUTDOORS
GROWING AMARYLLIS INDOORS
Amaryllis sent already potted need only a thorough watering with lukewarm water to begin growing. Then follow the "Pre-bloom Care" instructions below.
Please note: These Amaryllis are shipped with a layer of decorative Spanish moss on top of each pot. Cut the rubber band that holds the Spanish moss in place and arrange the moss around the bulb so it looks attractive.
Potting Bareroot Bulbs
Please note: Some of our Amaryllis kits are shipped with a disk of potting medium (Cocopeat). Follow the directions on the package for rehydrating the disk. Fill the pot about 1/2 full with Cocopeat, set the bulb on top, and fill in around the bulb with additional Cocopeat. Adjust the position of the bulb as needed so that the top 1/3 of the bulb is exposed. Do not be concerned if the final level of the Cocopeat is down inside the pot. Firm the Cocopeat and water lightly to settle it around the bulb. Then follow the “Pre-bloom Care” instructions below.

Growing Amaryllis in Stones and Water
*We recommend trimming dried roots off because they will decompose in water over time. Adding aquarium charcoal to the river stones will also help prevent any odors.
