Even though they usually flower in early spring, Amaryllis are one of the most iconic house plants of Christmas time, making superb gifts and wonderful festive displays when forced. This pair of bulbs are supplied with pots and planting compost - all you need is water and a little care to raise two splendid flower plants.
These large 26-28cm bulbs will produce one - often two - strong stems each bearing three or four blazing red trumpet blooms. Planted in December and kept in a cool well lit room they will bloom around March time and provide interest throughout as the stems steadily emerge and blooms unfurl.
Perfect as room decoration these Amayllis can also be cut as a trendy addition to a modern floral vase. They're easy to grow - just plant using the pots and provided bulb compost such that the top third of the bulb is above compost, water occasionally and watch it happen!
