Amaryllis – a bulb for more than Christmas
By Kathy Conner Cornell VCE Southside Master Gardener If you were lucky enough to receive or treat yourself to an Amaryllis plant this past Christmas – don’t throw it away. Amaryllis can continue to bloom for years if you know the correct way to treat it. Amaryllis can bloom any time of the year not just at Christmas. To bloom the plant needs a dormancy period of a few months. My stepdaughter is coming for a visit next month so I plan to bring my Amaryllis out of hiding and start watering it so it will be blooming for her visit.
