How to Dress Up Your Holiday Amaryllis
Christmas is coming, so let’s get prepared. Our shopping lists are long, and Florissa is here to help with our specialty holiday amaryllis. We have dressed up our selection of premium amaryllis bulbs to get them ready to party! From sweaters to tuxedos, we have you covered!
Amaryllis are the perfect flower to grow during the festive season – especially a waxed one! During the hustle and bustle of the month, wax amaryllis provides plenty of joy and beauty with almost no care at all! Featuring huge blooms of red, our dressed-up amaryllis fit perfectly with the colours of the season.
Before dressing in any festive attire, each amaryllis (Hippeastrum) bulb is given a wax coating, making it a waterless flower! All the moisture needed for the bulb to flourish is contained in the bulb through the waxing process. Large, brilliant fiery red flowers will appear over the next 4-6 weeks. Each bulb produces 2-3 stems. Amaryllis loves the light, so they might grow towards the sunshine coming from your windows. Don’t fret, just turn your bulb, and it will straighten out. When the first blooms are finished, simply remove the stem and another will soon appear. Waxed amaryllis bulbs are designed to be carefree so that everyone can enjoy the beauty of their magnificent blooms. These waxed bulbs are meant to last one season, so there is no aftercare. After the holidays, when the flowering ceases, simply remove its attire (i.e., sweaters or bow ties) and metal stand and put the bulb into the compost.
