Barbados Amaryllis

Hippeastrum

The amaryllises we grow and love are all descended from species native to eastern Brazil and the Andes. But that’s a technicality. They can be and probably are grown on Barbados, and if this is what they look like there, the Barbadians are fortunate people. Now you can be, too.

Allow 12 weeks from potting to bloom. Most bulbs will not flower until after Christmas.
Amaryllises are not available for shipment until mid-October. If you are also ordering outdoor bulbs and need the outdoor bulbs earlier, please place two separate orders.

Item # 7086
Height 18—22 inches
Flower Color Red with White
Bulb Size 32–34cm
?
Bulb size is determined by the circumference around the largest part of the bulb. Colorblends only delivers top size bulbs. Large bulbs produce more or larger flowers than small bulbs.
USDA Zones 8b—10b
?
Hardy in USDA zones 8b to 10b in the South or 10b on the West Coast.
Bloom Time Indoor
Bloom times are relative within the spring bulb season, which varies from place to place and year to year. They are intended to help you plan a sequence of bloom from Very Early season to Very Late season. About two weeks separate Early from Mid and Mid from Late. The start and duration of bloom is heavily dependent on the weather. Warm temperatures speed up growth and flowering; cold temperatures slow them down.

Sorry, Barbados Amaryllis is not available.

Planting Instructions

Except where winters are very mild, amaryllis bulbs must be grown indoors in containers. Complete growing instructions are provided in our Planting & Care Instructions (PDF). A paper copy of the instructions is enclosed with every order.

In mild-winter areas (USDA Zone 8b and warmer), bulbs can be planted outdoors. They perform best in partial shade and require well-drained soil. They may need irrigation in dry climates. Once established, they typically bloom in the spring.

Perennial Tulips

You buy tulip bulbs, plant them in the fall and enjoy a great display in the spring. But the following spring, all you get is a smattering of flowers and maybe a bunch of leaves. What happened?

Off With Their Heads!

In Holland, when tulips start to bloom in the fields, Dutch bulb growers do their best to cut off the flowers as quickly as possible.
