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.

This product is a great gift for persons in nursing homes and rehab facilities. We potted it ourselves, then put it on the patient's windowsill with watering instructions. Both of my parents enjoyed watching the bulb send up shoots, then the bud, then the blooms. My folks tracked the progress with other patients and nursing staff and enjoyed the attention as visitors came in their rooms to photograph the gorgeous flowers. The bulbs are always high quality and my elderly parents were thrilled with second and third buds and multiple flowers. The bulbs made so many people happy and increased my parents' social interactions. They were never lonely when they had an amaryllis on their windowsills! I trusted White Flower Farms to provide healthy bulbs and we have never been disappointed. Thank you for delighting so many people with your quality products. It meant a lot to me and my parents.
Ohio Gardener from Columbus, Ohio
Truly one of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen! Easy to grow. The bulb produced a total of 3 stalks (4 to 6 huge flowers on each). The stalks bloomed at different times providing me with a month full of gorgeous pink flowers. What a treat during the bleak Ohio winter!
Anna's Herbs from Lafayette,LA
I was breath taken! This bulb gave me goose bumps! It was huge, so once again I potted for my patio. The color was wonderful and oozed sweetness with it's beautiful full blossoms of various hues of luscious pink. It has not spent itself out, but keeps giving more...another stark appeared, and before you knew it, my ruffle of magic is slowly opening for another round, with yet another stark coming up for round 3! My color rimmed clay pot has now come inside for the coffee table!
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.
