Christmas-Flowering Amaryllis "Alfresco" | Potted
Add an elegant flair to your home with our potted, Christmas-flowering Amaryllis.
Long-lasting and excellent as cut flowers, amaryllises are some of the most elegant holiday flowers. Alfresco is one of our favourites – a Sonata variety with glistening white petals and a chartreuse green center, the double blooms typically grow to 6 inches wide, with stems that are 12″ tall.
Not only do Alfresco’s fluffy blooms brighten up any room instantly, they also make the perfect centerpiece at the family dinner table, or a gift that keeps on giving year after year for your beauty-loving friends and family.
Each bulb comes ready to bloom in a 6″ Italian terracotta pot in clay or sand colour, dressed with decorative moss, pine cones, and a holiday ribbon.
After you receive the potted amaryllis, place it in a warm, sunny room immediately. Amaryllis are easy to grow and bloom with minimal care. They dislike soggy soil – water lightly only when the soil surface feels dry. Our amaryllis come with at least 6″ of growth and should flower in 3-5 weeks. After the flowering season, just keep on watering as needed in a sunny position. Their long, bright green leaves will continue to jazz up your space as a house plant through the spring and summer.
If you want it to re-bloom, just stop watering and store it in a cool, dry place by the end of August. A dark closet or the garage will work wonderfully. When the leaves have turn yellow and wilted, cut them off to 2 inches above the bulb, repot in new soil and put in a sunny room. The amaryllis will slowly wake up and re-bloom in about 8-10 weeks!
