Description

Go on, give in to Amaryllis 'Temptation'! It’s difficult not to be seduced by this belter of a Hippeastrum—just look at those fascinating, gorgeous blooms! Pure white petals are artistically smudged with brilliant red. Also a thin, defining red line around the edge of each delicately pointed petal is quite a show-off characteristic. From across the room this big, impressive indoor plant is an eye-catching feature and, with so much detail, you’ll find you’re drawn in for a much closer look. Tempted? Don’t resist! Give one of these big bulbs a try—you won’t be disappointed!  

Each Hippeastrum 'Temptation' bulb produces multiple blooms per flower stem, and our bulbs often produce more than one flower stem. This means that your amaryllis remains beautiful for longer whilst requiring the bare minimum in terms of maintenance. It’s really easy to achieve spectacular results with Amaryllis 'Temptation'. Simply plant your bulb in autumn into a small pot with compost, position in a warm, bright room and water occasionally. When it’s ready, it’ll produce the most majestic flower stem topped with an impressive head of flowers, then usually a second stem will follow for an encore.
