Seasonal Amaryllis Blooms

In this post, I will highlight a flower bloom that is synonymous with Christmas, and that is the Amaryllis, an indoor, winter blooming bulb flower. It is a popular gift-giving plant as well during the seasonal holidays. Please enjoy these gorgeous blooms! Many thanks to the W. W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory for their outstanding holiday exhibit!

    Oh! These are SO pretty! . . . . but, part of my work is in a home owners association. One of the residents brought us a bag of these, wanting us to plant them in the neighborhood! Our climate is mild, but it is not THAT mild. We can only put them in pots where they can be seen, but will take them away later. I know that people grow them in the garden in San Jose, but I would guess that they also take a lot of work to keep them looking good too!

    • Thanks, Tony! A friend in Florida mentioned to me that Amaryllis blooms there in the spring. But then again, that is a different growing region with lots of tropical plants. Happy holidays to you!

        It seems to me that part of the allure of the wild amaryllis (naked ladies) is that they bloom while not much else is blooming, just as summer ends, or as autumn is beginning. I really do not remember when the fancier amaryllis bloom here ‘naturally’, because they are uncommon out in gardens. They may bloom in autumn too, but I think that they bloom early in winter, just before the weather gets cool. They really are flashy when I see them, but I do not see them often.

Thank you!
