Looking at the date today I see that I should be singing the 12 days of Christmas….haha. No …..today I am talking about the Amaryllis Bulb. Every year I plant a bulb around Thanksgiving to have a flower for Christmas Day 🙂 Amaryllis bulbs are so easy to grow, and so fun to watch, as they seem to bloom overnight. The bulbs are stunning and come in a variety of colors including red, pink, white, and a combinations of these! They are a favorite gift plant because they are reliable. They need to be in a warm place with light. You might need to stake the stem as it gets tall and top heavy. This is mine this morning. I will show you the finished product next week.
This flower makes Patti extremely happy!
