Comments: This is just one of a huge number of amaryllis bulb cultivars that can be grown in the garden or in containers. This makes an excellent winter/spring container plant After flowering in a container the bulb can be planted outdoors in a moist, fertile soil in warm parts of the country. Plant so that the top of the bulb is exposed above the ground. Mulch bulbs where light freezes occur. They cannot tolerate hard freezes without some protection.
