  • This is my favorite Amaryllis that I have grown so far. I potted the bulb up on 10/28, and it started blooming on 12/27. The bulb sat doing nothing for many weeks, then suddenly 2 bloom stalks started growing, with no foliage. The bloom stalks are 22 inches tall, and the flowers are 6 inches wide. All 4 flowers on the bloom stalk bloomed within 2 days, creating a beautiful display. The stalks did not need staking. I would gladly buy this variety again.
  • Very tall plant with large flowers in a deep red velvet. I bought a large bulb which was already potted with 1-inch foliage on 10/28. The plant bloomed on Dec 25. The foliage and bloom stalk grew to 29 inches tall. I got two stalks with 4 flowers each. Flowers are 7 inches across. For me this amaryllis is too tall, and the flowers are so big and heavy the whole pot fell over repeatedly. As beautiful as it is, I would not buy this one again.
  • Have had this one since the 1990's. It originally came mail order from either Park's or its then sister company, Wayside. This is the easiest one to force that I have and always blooms first. The flowers are large; around 8 inches across. But in all the time I've had it, there have never been more than 2 blooms per flower stalk. The bulb multiplies vigorously by offsets.
  • Lycoris squamigera and Amaryllis belladonna can be easily confused. L. squamigera has a green inflorescence stalk, versus a dark stalk on A. Belladonna.
  • I've grown mine 5 years and it skipped blooming last year, but had 5" flowers this spring, so no complaints.
