Amaryllis flowers grow from bulbs, and though they require hot climates to grow outside, they can also be grown indoors as houseplants to provide stunning blooms inside the home. These bulbs are great for beginner gardeners as they are incredibly easy to plant and even easier to take care of. They also are very rewarding to grow, with large and impressive flowers that can bloom for weeks or even months at a time. The 'evergreen' cultivar of amaryllis produces stunning tropical flowers, with six long petals on each bloom that fan outwards.
The throat of the flowers is apple green, and the color fades to lime green and then pale green along the lengths of the petals. The stamens on these flowers curve at their tips are especially long, and they are also green. The flowers are produced on top of tall and sturdy stems that bloom between eight and ten weeks after the bulbs are planted. Each bulb will produce two stems, and each stem will produce four flowers, so one bulb results in a total of eight flowers. These flowers enjoy full sun or partial shade, and will typically flower in late spring or early summer.
