Description

Plant an Amaryllis 'Susan' bulb and enjoy a playful panoply of colour in your home—this sweet Susie is splashy, fun and pretty, what could be more uplifting in the middle of winter? With generous blooms formed of silky petals in a soft shade salmon pink, this is a real corker of a Hippeastrum. If you haven’t grown a top-size Amaryllis bulb before, we’re sure you’ll be quite amazed at what a difference it makes. Your plant will be tall, each stem topped with an impressive number of flowers, and often a second stem to follow soon after the first. You won’t regret giving Amaryllis 'Susan' a space to sparkle in your home! 

This Hippeastrum is rewardingly impressive, and such beauty is actually quite easy to achieve. Simply pot up your Hippeastrum 'Susan' bulb in autumn, put it in a warm room and water occasionally. Achieving petal perfection is effortless for Amaryllis 'Susan', but allow a little bit of time for her to shine—you can expect to see a long-lasting show during winter and growth can be sped up by moving to a warmer location, or slowed down in a cooler room.
