AMARYLLIS ALFRESCO ® -- Perhaps the most fully double amaryllis. Some say the flowers have a triple number of petals and excellent and reliable performance.

Hadeco Amaryllis are an exciting new development in the Horticultural world. Size for size, they will outperform any others as far as number of stalks per bulb, number of blooms per stalk and size of blooms is concerned. Developed especially for pot culture, these amaryllis have stout stems and the leaves often grow simultaneously with the flowers. All Hadeco varieties have passed through extensive testing and are among the very best hippeastrum hybrids in the world. They are selected to be easily forced, long lasting, and disease resistant.

Bulbs are officially 20-22 cm in circumference. This was the approximate size at harvest time, but normally the bulbs shrink in storage. There is some variation with each variety, and actual size depends on the harvest each year. This size averages 2 stems with a total of 11 flowers.

To Plant Amaryllis outside:

Plant your bulbs in dappled shade (if you have lots of sun in your area). If the area you live in has dappled shade/good cloud cover for the summer then you can plant wherever you wish. The other main requirement is freely draining soil. If you water the area and water is still puddled on the surface after 15 min then you need to amend the soil, you can use sand (½ sand ½ native soil,) you can mix in ½ bark chunks/saw dust/wood shavings instead of sand if you prefer, or not plant there. Once you have the area you are planning to plant decided on/prepared then you can plant your bulbs. You can plant them as close as 3 inches apart (that will be slightly crowded) or any larger increment you like. You want to plant the bulbs so the neck is slightly above the soil and water doesn’t get into the neck of the bulb(s) and cause fungus/other diseases. Water heavily right after you plant, then give them a good soaking once a week. If the water is puddling up then stop watering. It is better to under water then over water.
