4 Best Amaryllis Flowers for Spring
We may see them more often during the winter, but amaryllis flowers are perfect for spring. They are especially popular during the Christmas period when festivities are at their height. The deep red hue of the amaryllis makes it brilliant to decorate with during the holidays. It’s great around the house, as a gift or on top of the tree.
But, if you think it’s only a wintertime flower, you’re mistaken. In fact, amaryllis bulbs can last for decades and the wide variety of colors and blooms ensure a good fit for each season. So you can have them in your home all year long if you choose. With spring blooming, here are four amaryllis flowers that will keep your space looking amazing through this season of growth.
Amaryllis Red Pearl
The Red Pearl is a type of amaryllis flower that is blood red, making it an eye-catching addition to your home, garden or office set up. However, it’s not only the color and texture that make this plant ideal for spring. It’s also the fact that they are known to last for months indoors. All you need to do is place the bulbs or cut-offs in a vase with tepid water near a source of sunlight and viola.
Living Red Pearl bulbs typically take around six to ten weeks to bloom properly. Therefore, preparing them in mid-February will ensure they continue to bloom and grab attention well into April and May. No green thumb? No problem! Choose one of our wax, glitter or moss bulbs and enjoy this gorgeous bloom with no planting, watering or maintenance!
The Amaryllis Minerva isn’t as robust as some of the other versions of this flower. However, its unique beauty is something to behold. This amaryllis is a good choice in the spring when the weather is warm and there is plenty of sunlight. The trick is to wait for the frosty, chilly conditions to subside before placing them in soil.
You can plant these bulbs under a shelter, but it’s important not to block the sunlight. Instead of the deep red of the Pearl or vibrant orange of the Ferrari, this version displays white and red, looking delicate and floaty. It’s perfect for spring!
Most Amaryllis flowers can bloom more than once, which is why many of them are perfect for spring. Keeping these beautiful flowers alive and blooming year after year is incredibly rewarding.
The Amaryllis Ferrari has a trick up its sleeve due to the size of its bulbs. Because its bulbs are substantially larger than most other amaryllises, there’s a bigger chance it will produce more stems that flower into voluptuous, velvety leaves of a vibrant orange-red hue.
As a result, replanting Ferrari bulbs after they have bloomed is a lot easier and the odds of seeing them again in the spring are greater.
Amaryllis Picassos are perennial, so they will happily bloom again once winter is finished. The fact they are resistant to humidity is also a bonus since many other flowers die when replanted due to the increase in temperature.
There is no denying that their lovely colors is what makes them stand out the most during the springtime. The mostly white bloom with delicate red border is a stunning choice this time of year!
