Alfresco Amaryllis Description

Extraordinarily lush, pure white blooms
You and your holiday-season visitors will be astonished by its fluffy, fragrant, fully double blooms resembling large carnations! This easy-to-grow variety produces weeks of long-lasting, 6-7" flowers that are as white as snow save for their soft chartreuse throats. Expect 4-5 of these incredible blooms on each of its two or three, 14-20" stalks. When Alfresco is forced indoors, its blooms brighten any wintertime décor as outdoor gardens lie dormant awaiting the arrival of spring. With proper care, amaryllis bulbs can be forced year after year.
