This very popular holiday plant is one of the most widely grown bulbous plants in the world. While it is often forced to bloom in the shortest, darkest days of winter in temperate zones, it is a popular landscape plant in subtropical zones. Northern gardeners sometimes even treat it as a summer flowering bulb that is planted after the last frost in spring.
From December 6, 2003 through Februaruy 1st, 2004 we showcased hundreds of bulbs representing more than fifty cultivars and species in the Administration Building lobby. Browse this gallery of 84 images to see many of those flowering plants that were assembled for the Deck the Halls with Hippeastrum: An Amaryllis Extravaganza exhibit. Check out the alternating images to your right, then follow the links below (there's even a guessing game found in the 'Display Mix' section). You might find the perfect one to suit your taste, and at the very least, you'll be amazed by the diversity of flower types and colors that you'll see.
