Planting Guides

Amaryllis and Paperwhites, are favorites for the winter holiday season. These bulbs are easy to grow with spectacular results. They need no chilling, and once planted can bloom in as little as 3-5 weeks for Paperwhites, and just 6-8 weeks for Amaryllis.

Tips For Growing Amaryllis (Easy!)

  • When planting your bulb, select a pot that allows about one inch all around, and at least two inches below the bulb.
  • Use a good quality soil-less potting mix or a blend of one part peat moss and one part coarse sand for planting.
  • Make sure to not plant too deep and leave the top of the bulb ("shoulder') just slightly above the soil.
  • Water in your newly planted bulbs thoroughly, but don't water again until the new sprout is well out of the bulb.
  • Once you have a sprout a few inches long, water regularly and soon your amaryllis will produce its spectacular, huge flowers.
  • Remember to turn the pot regularly to make sure the stalk grows straight, as these bulbs have a tendency to grow towards the light.

Tips For Growing Paperwhites

  • Select a container that about 3 - 4 inches deep (8 - 10 cm), without drainage holes.
  • Add 1-2 inches of gravel, stones or marble to the bottom of the container.
  • Place your paperwhite bulbs, pointed side up, on the gravel layer. Fit them in tightly, they don't mind being crowded.
  • Add water to the container so that it just reaches the base of the bulbs. Don't cover the entire bulb with water, or it could rot.
  • Check your bulbs daily and add water if needed.
  • When roots begin to develop, you can move your bulbs to a sunny window.
  • After they begin flowering, move the plants out of direct sunlight, so the blooms will last longer.

          It took about three weeks till I saw any growth. I called cs and they explained that since it was a larger bulb it can take longer. Sure thing, it started growing to this amazing double bloom. It grew well outside for the summer and now I will be taking it in so I can dry it out for it's next round in January.

          Comments about High Country Gardens Amaryllis Bulb Charisma:

          I started two bulbs as Christmas gifts for my mom and my mother-in-law. Wanted something out of the ordinary, and these sure are. The delicate shading is just breathtaking! Hadn't grown Amaryllis in years so I wasn't sure how early to start, but shipping time was spot-on, both plants were blooming gloriously by 3rd week of December. (This in spite of having to grow them in a less-than-ideal location!) Repeat blooms kept them looking good for a long time, both recipients said their guests had many positive comments. My mom asked me to take her Amaryllis back for the summer and set it out in my flowerbed. I just brought it indoors last week, we are hoping to see it repeat last year's splendid display this winter.

              Q & A

              Suggested Companion Plants:

              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
