New Amaryllis for 2013

Safari amaryllis

New for 2013: Safari

It’s hard to beat amaryllis for eye-catching beauty and easy care. And watching an amaryllis bulb come into flower is nothing short of a miracle. This year, we’re proud to add five new varieties to our amaryllis lineup, including Safari, a variety offered only by Gardener’s Supply. It has gorgeous, velvety red blooms on strong stems. The quintessential flower for holiday decorating and a unique gift, it arrives planted in a whitewashed rattan basket. Please note: quantities of this new variety are limited

In addition to some returning favorites, new this year are four varieties that are available potted or in gift bags:

  • Lemon Star: Creamy lemon-yellow flowers with enchanting green throats glow like starlight.
  • Flamenco Queen: Lively strokes and spatters of crimson make each flower uniquely beautiful.
  • Grand Diva: Showstopping blooms of the deepest burgundy will be the highlight of your holiday display.
  • Ambiance: Star-shaped flowers with crisp red markings provide a warm welcome on a chilly winter day.

    Do you have a problem solver for those of us who must leave our treasured plants in the care of others for weeks at a time? I have Bay, Lemon and Hibiscus trees, also geraniums and herbs I winter them over in my heated porch. They need WATER to survive. Is there some way they can be watered systematically without getting help from people? I would greatly appreciate any suggestions you might have. Thanks, Diane Simon

      You can find a list of vacation watering tips here:,default,pg.html I have seen automatic systems for watering houseplants, but it’s ideal if you can find a person to look after things — even if you have some “automatic” systems in place. Maybe the person you find isn’t a gardener now, but the skills can be taught. And wouldn’t the world be better with another gardener? -David Grist, Gardener’s Supply
