Thereís nothing quite like an amaryllis; odd looking, yet appealing. Amaryllis are gorgeous for a welcome span in the winter and then pretty dull for the rest of the year. Most amaryllis will go dormant naturally and re-bloom sometime during winter. However, if youíre one of those gardeners who prefer to force their amaryllis into bloom for the holiday season, get cracking. Many Ďpreparedí bulbs are sold right now, ready to pot up and have in time for Christmas. Here are directions for forcing your Amaryllis for holiday display, as well as general care for your amaryllis plant.
