Big, bold, and red, amaryllis flowers are stunningly beautiful for the holiday season. Plus, they grow from bulbs, which means they can be repeatedly replanted. After your flowers have wilted, store the bulbs in a dark, dry, cool location to prevent rot. Plant them again in the fall and expect flowers within six to eight weeks.
It is good to remember, though, that, although amaryllis flowers are beautiful, they are poisonous, too. Keep them in a location where small children and household pets won’t be able to accidentally ingest them.
