Amaryllis seems to be the most popular flower on Buffalo-NiagaraGardening.com. Maybe that’s because it has a very large and showy flower– and you can enjoy inside in the winter!
Gardeners who received an amaryllis at Christmastime want to know how to keep it blooming year after year. My friend David Clark, international gardening expert, has provided most of the information about amaryllis on my site.
Below are links to the articles that you will probably find most helpful. Make sure you look at the comments in these articles, too.
- Basic information on forcing amaryllis
- A different method of forcing amaryllis, plus what to do if you get red streaks on the leaves
- Potting an amaryllis
- Don’t cut leaves off of amaryllis! (If you already cut the leaves off, read the comments on this article to see what to do. Also find information in the comments on problems where leaves fell off.)
- Holland variety of amaryllis has no leaves: will it come back?
If you have a problem with a plant, you can stop in to a local garden center for advice or contact the Master Gardeners in your area.
