A few facts about the amaryllis:
  • The amaryllis is native to South and Central America and the Caribbean.
  • The amaryllis come in a variety of beautiful colors, including shades of red, white, pink, salmon and orange.
  • Amaryllis can be planted from October until late April and will flower from December until the end of June (source).
  • Amaryllis bulbs take 7 to 10 weeks to bloom, and if you plant at intervals of 2 weeks you can experience continuous bloom (source).
