Description

In true operatic style, Amaryllis 'Carmen' boasts the rich, velvety reds of a matador’s cloak and simply ooze passion and excitement. Allow this prima donna to take absolute pride of place with her temptress blooms and enjoy almost instant gratification when she blooms after just six to eight weeks. Although Hippeastrum 'Carmen' likes to flaunt her colours in sunshine, she’s just as happy when grown indoors.

Time your planting for December blooms to add to your Christmas cheer, or plant your Amaryllis 'Carmen' bulbs after the last frosts for a mid to late spring show. Easy-going amaryllis bulbs allow you to store them for next year’s blooms if you treat them kindly and allow for natural dormancy.
