Amaryllis Plants

Falling behind in posts lately - not because I have nothing to say! Just not enough hours in the day to get everything done, and done well, so something has to give.

Any how, we have these amazing amaryllis plants in the shop right now. We've done them up in an uber modern look with acrylic pearls in a cylinder vase, and sparkly white branches.

This is a close up of some cut amaryllis. One of the beauties of the plants is watching them grow, so we sell them starting to sprout so you can watch them shoot up and bloom. This particular color is a stunner - such a deep velvety red.

Here's a version with no twig structure for those of you who like things super simple and clean.

Those things that look like marbles are actually water retaining crystals. They come looking like grains of sand and then swell up to this size when added to water. And since they are basically just water, you won't have to water your plant for a really long time. In fact, you'll need to wait for those pearls to shrink up, so your bulb won't rot.

And after your plant is done, you can recycle the pearls into potting soil to retain moisture in your outdoor potted plants next summer - then you won't have to water them as often either!

Plain amaryllis plant - $45
Amaryllis plant with twig structure - $53
