Sumatra Amaryllis Bulb Description

Gorgeous salmon colour in an exotic flower form
Enjoy an eye-popping display of some of the most amazing tropical blooms by simply planting one bulb. Sumatra Amaryllis exhibits its enchanting beauty within 8–10 weeks of planting, delivering 4–6 salmon-pink blooms per stem, each with a striking, spidery flower form. Forcing bulbs indoors brightens winter days with colour and style, and Sumatra has both! The 6" blooms top tall 16" stalks, and create a wonderful floral display throughout the long blooming season. Give as a wonderfully unique gift to a special friend or relative. Ships as a 26–28 cm bulb.
