Amaryllis

Amaryllis display bold, trumpet-like blooms for weeks with little care. They are show stopping as a solo act, but also mix wonderfully with houseplants or holiday greenery. When you pick up Amaryllis bulbs for yourself, consider extras for gifting – leave them in their box-kits for DIY friends and plant others up in funky containers for those who'd rather decorate than DIY! If the bulbs you purchase are already sprouting foliage, blooms should only be about 4 weeks away!

Paper White Narcissus

Paper Whites have a knack for fitting any décor, from elegant to rustic, with their dainty and fragrant white blooms. They display best in multiples – so plant a clump of bulbs in one large container or pot up several smaller containers and group them together. Just sprouted paper whites, in tiny pots, make for fun place-setting décor that guests can take with and look forward to New Year's blooms.
