Amaryllis. Background information about, origin, species, care and bouquets with Amaryllis
The shining star in the house
As a sparkling flower, the amaryllis brings warmth in cold days. You can even make it the star of the holidays. But she is also doing well in the early spring. Can this long-stemmed and stately beauty also shine in your home?
Amaryllis a Fairytale flower
The petals of the amaryllis are very special; they look like beautiful velvet. They are available in white, red, yellow, pink, (salmon) pink, purple, orange and two-tone. Usually there are four to six impressive flowers on the stem. The amaryllis has no leaves, which is why they call her a 'Naked Lady' in the United States.
The amaryllis symbolizes pride and enchanting beauty, and conveys a sense of friendship and affection. Truly a flower to conquer hearts with, from the kitchen table in a bouquet or when you give away a beautiful bunch.
Our amaryllis is native to South and Central America and the Caribbean and is not actually amaryllis. What we call amaryllis is actually called Hippeastrum. This radiant flower is a descendant of the daffodil family and grows from a bulb. The name Hippeastrum comes from Greek and literally means 'knight star', referring to the star-shaped petals.
The Amaryllis is not a flower that is available all year round. Therefore, always contact our customer service first to be sure that this flower is in stock at our florist…
