#Plant Types

The Amaryllis we are looking at today is not actually the Amaryllis. Though commonly known by that name, the plant we are considering today is actually a Hippeastrum, native to South America. Boasting colorful, showy blooms, this Amaryllis is a regular in celebration of winter holidays for many, primarily in North America. Typically arriving on the scene as just a bulb in a pot of soil, proper care is key to witnessing the growth and blossoming of this delightful plant.

Your amaryllis plants are fairly easy to take care of. You may just need to store your amaryllis bulbs overwinter in order to keep them thriving in the spring. Keep each variation separate so you know how to replant them later on.
