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.

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery.

Janie from Port Huron, Michigan
I was so happy to be able to purchase the cybister amaryllis La Paz because i had given one to my daughter last year when she passed away. It is so cheering and spectacular. Three stems with tall wonderful spidery, bird-like blooms are so exotic that I sometimes fantasize that they are "aliens," bringing pleasure into my house. My amaryllis bulbs after blooming form a little family that I encourage to rest and renew themselves basking in the sun through the summer. Many of them re-bloom the next year, which must be an indication of the good quality of the amaryllis White Flower Farm offers. I estimate 1/3 re-bloom. I am sorry White Flower Farm does not ship to Canada because I wanted to send a La Paz to a friend who also lost her daughter. I hoped she would be comforted by what amaryllis symbolize to me: Endurance, hope, spectacular beauty that our children now and then exhibit, and the lesson that patience is rewarded.

I used this in a hypertufa pot I had made and used several of these with small ferns. The affect was stunning, magical, and beautiful. It was placed on the dining room table and everyone remarked. Thank you for presenting these for the holidays and for making our holiday memorable.

I have never ordered from White Flower Farm before but wanted to try one of these exotic amaryllis. Wow, it is spectacular, not just two or three flower stems but four! This plant is far beyond my expectations, I will be ordering again!
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.
