Florist & Wholesaler Information

  • Popular family of bulb flowers  in a massive array of colours which now includes newer double flowering hybrids such as the Nymph series and the new Blossom Peacock.
  • Should be purchased with blooms showing some colour but still tightly clustered and not opening.
  • This is a classic Christmas crop most widely available from Holland but also with great quality production from Ontario, Canada.
  • The Dutch production of Amaryllis runs from October until May with some supply even available outside of this season.
  • Ontario production is available November / December.
  • Care and Handling:
  • Cut stems and hydrate using floral preservative out of the cooler for 2 hours.
  • Amaryllis stems can sometimes split while in a vase. This can be fixed by using transparent tape or an elastic.
  • Split stems does not affect the blooms to drink properly.
  • A tall vase is preferred to help support the heavy blooms of Amaryllis.
  • Can last up to 10 days when recieved in proper tight bud stage.

Grading Information

  • Graded by number of blooms per stem and stems per standardized carton size.  10/12/15/18 are the most predominant
  • Usually 2,3 or 4+ blooms per stem.
  • Stem lengths vary depending on variety from 45-85cm.

Grower and Breeder Information

  • Should be carefully packed using the well tested Dutch packing method in trays with some soft packing material to prevent marking.
  • Amaryllis are very heavy and need to be shipped in "florist trays" to prevent shipping damage.
  • Stems can split longitudinally in shipping and should be inspected on arrival for this problem.
  • "Stem Splitting" and curling can be a problem after harvest once in the vase.  It can be helpful to wrap the bottom of the stem with elastic or tape to prevent this.
  • It should be noted that Amaryllis with slightly split and curling lower stems still drink and perform well.  They can also simply be re-cut.
