Yellow Star Amaryllis Bulb

Yellow Star Amaryllis Bulb

Force bulb indoors for a springtime pop in winter

For a glorious splash of sunshine in the dead of winter, may we suggest Yellow Star Amaryllis. This vibrant variety produces 6" single blooms of buttery yellow, which aptly signal the coming of spring. Moderately tall at 15–18" in height, it looks fantastic on a coffee table, perks up kitchen countertops, and makes a fantastic addition to a holiday table. Blooms emerge within a short 8–10 weeks of planting, giving curious little ones a wonderful lesson in the beauty of nature. As each day passes, the erupting stems lengthen a little more until the blooms burst open and bring bright colour to the winter season. Ships as a 24–26 cm bulb.

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
