Amaryllis are a perfect flower for the holiday/winter season. A bright, cheery dash of color and they are so easy to grow, even indoors. Individual bulbs make great gifts, especially if you get them started first! Why not plant them in an unusual container, like a teapot or a gravy boat, so your recipient gets two gifts in one? They come in all sorts of colors – red, white, pink, and orange, but my favorite is definitely the striped variety, something you don’t see too often in flowers.
