NEW AMARYLLIS FROM WHITE FLOWER FARM
Easy care amaryllis are great holiday gifts, even for non-gardeners. Watching these bulbs produce their large, colorful blooms is fun for all ages and will brighten up winter days indoors. The gardeners at White Flower Farm (www.whiteflowerfarm.com) review hundreds of amaryllis in Holland each year, and grow dozens at their nursery to be certain they perform as expected. Only the best make the cut and are then offered as large bulbs, guaranteed to produce at least two stems with four flowers per stem.

View White Flower Farm's full list of dozens of amaryllis varieties at www.whiteflowerfarm.com/amaryllis.

Some of the best-selling amaryllis include: 'Apple Blossom' (soft pink and white), 'Picotee' (white with fine red edge), 'Stargazer' (red with a white star), and doubles 'Nymph' (white with pinkish red brush marks) and 'Red Peacock' (solid red). When pressed, the staff at White Flower Farm agreed to name 5 of their favorite new amaryllis for the holiday season:

** 'Purple Rain'
Despite the name, the two-tone blooms aren't purple, but pale pink threaded with deep pink veins.

1 bulb in green eco pot: $34
1 bulb in wicker basket: $39
2 green eco pots in 17-inch woven basket: $77

** 'Amorice'
Large, sparkling white blooms accented by red stripes and bright apple-green throats.

1 bulb in green eco pot: $32
1 bulb in wicker basket: $37
2 green eco pots in 17-inch woven basket: $74

** 'Sweet Nymph'
The newest addition to the Nymph series, 'Sweet Nymph' has fully double blooms of rosy pink marked with darker veins and lighter edges.

1 bulb in green eco pot: $34
1 bulb in wicker basket: $39
2 green eco pots in 17-inch woven basket: $77

** 'Mega Star'
'Mega Star' averaged five large red-and-white blooms per stem in White Flower Farm's trials and is a top staff favorite.

1 bulb in green eco pot: $32
1 bulb in wicket basket: $37
1 bulb in 2-toned decorative metal cachepot: $49

** 'Souvenir'
The bright scarlet blooms of 'Souvenir' proved larger than average, often 8 inches across. They are broad, sturdy, and a stunning color.

1 bulb in green eco pot: $29
1 bulb in wicker basket: $34
1 bulb in 7-inch bronzed metal cachepot: $60

There are also early-flowering varieties, such as 'Zombie', 'Candy Floss' and 'Ballerina', as well as some very unique containers for favorite amaryllis (a golden clay pot and saucer; a crimped cream clay pot and saucer and more). And cybister amaryllis with orchid-like blooms! Visit www.whiteflowerfarm/amaryllis to see all of the offerings.
