Amaryllis and Paperwhites

Amaryllis_NLBig, colorful blooms of the amaryllis are hard to resist this time of year. Fort Collins Nursery has stocked many different varieties including Ambience with giant candy cane-like red and white blossoms and Magic Green with cream star-shaped flowers suffused with green and overlaid with lines and speckles of wine red.  We have Apple Blossom featuring spectacular flowers in white with pink pastel. For intense red color try Black Pearl featuring stunning, velvety dark maroon flowers and Red Lion with huge, bright red blossoms.

Are fragrant paperwhites your favorite holiday centerpiece? We have several Narcissi varieties waiting to bloom including the popular Ziva and Chinese Sacred Lily bearing fragrant blooms with golden yellow cups.  For a virtually odorless variety try the pure white flowering and lightly scented Inbal.

Don’t forget a bulb planter, vase or pebbles to complete the look. We also offer prepackaged kits, a perfect gift for anyone on your list.
