Anticipation & Amaryllis



There are so many things to love about this season!  But perhaps my favorite part is the sense of excitement and anticipation.  Amaryllis are a lovely extension of this idea of anticipation and a spot of spring in the winter months.  This year we have more varieties of premium amaryllis bulbs than ever- last I counted we had close to 20 unique types!  


BEST SELLER- Hot pink blooms, large flowering.

CHERRY NYMPH- Red blooms, double flowering.

CHRISTMAS GIFT- Traditional white blooms, large flowering.

DAPHNE- Red blooms with ruffled edges, large flowering.

ELVAS- Flowers have darker pink center to soft pink edge, double flowering.

EXOTIC PEACOCK- Red and white striped blooms, double flowering.

EXOTIC STAR- Pink and white blooms with small, defined stripes, small flowering.

SAMBA- Coral blooms with defined white striping and edges, large flowering.

LA PAZ- Two types, unusual pink/maroon blooms with small stripes, small flowering.

LEMON STAR- Chartreuse blooms, large flowering.

MAGNUM- Traditional red blooms, large flowering.

NARANJA- Bright orange blooms, large flowering.

RED PEARL- Burgundy blooms, large flowering.

ROSY STAR- Blooms are white with pink accents, large flowering.

SHOWMASTER- Blooms are red and white, large flowering.

SPLASH- Red blooms with white stripes, double flowering.

WHITE NYMPH- Pure white blooms, double flowering.


Most of our bulbs are available loose so that you could take them home to plant or give away, but we also have a unique selection of planted amaryllis arrangements that make beautiful gifts or centerpieces.  Additionally, I am so excited that we have a limited supply of waxed amaryllis bulbs!  Waxed amaryllis are a one-time-use bulb that have been coated in a decorative wax.  There is no need to plant or water them as they are self-sustaining.

I'm still trying to decide which one to enjoy at my home!  Perhaps an Exotic Peacock or White Nymph...?  (Maybe both?)

New this year!  We will be open these evenings in addition to our regular Winter Hours.

***

By the looks of the greenhouses full of poinsettias, Christmas must be on the way!  (If it's any consolation, they're still quite green...no red just yet!)  However we will be opening up in just a few short weeks with poinsettias, bulbs, greens, berries, and bunches of other goodies.  

And!  Please take note that we're trying something different this year and extending our December hours to include Thursday afternoon/ evenings.  We've been working on finding a way to be more accommodating with our open hours, so I hope this is a nice option for all of us.  You'll have to let us know what you think.

See you soon!

Optional- sweeten with Stevia:

Boil one to two cups of water and add one handful of stevia leaves.  Steep for no more than 5 minutes (any longer will make it a little bitter).  Add as much of this simple syrup mixture as desired.

To Make:

Add the torn basil leaves to the lemonade, let sit overnight (about 12 hours).  Add ice before serving.

I don't know about you, but around here we love our teas!  There is just nothing better than a cool drink on a warm afternoon in the greenhouse.  These two recipes are so simple and so delicious.  Enjoy!
