Now that we’re well into November, I guess I have to face the fact that the holidays are coming. (There’s a part of me that really doesn’t want to think about Christmas until December starts.)
But amaryllis help me overcome my curmudgeon instincts. I delight in their ease of growth and rich colors.
Happily, there are more amaryllis than ever on the market — from the traditional reds and whites to pinks, oranges, and multicolors.
To show off the wide world of amaryllis, I’ve put up a slideshow here on BHG.com displaying 23 different varieties and links to be able to purchase many of them right now so you can enjoy their beautiful blooms at your holiday gatherings.
If you take a look, I’d love to hear which your favorites are! (My top two are ‘Benfica’, slide 6, and ‘Santos’, slide 17.)
