(Florist Amaryllis, Unique Florist Amaryllis)

Differing in form from most other double "amaryllis", this 1993 introduction has disheveled salmon-orange and creamy white blooms with numerous often misshapen "petals." Don't let the common name fool you: like most so-called "amaryllis," this tender perennial bulb is a hybrid of the South American Hippeastrum rather than the South African Amaryllis.

The dark to medium green strap-like leaves grow from a large bulb and are nearly evergreen in moist frost-free climates. The...

(Butterfly Amaryllis)

The fragrant flowers of butterfly amaryllis have large petals of white with burgundy red stripes and markings. The common name refers to floral appearance: three of the six petals are held firmly but the other three flop and droop resembling a cluster of resting butterflies. This Brazilian native blooms from late winter into spring and has evergreen foliage.

In frosty winter locales the long strappy leaves may die back, but in general this bulb doesn't need a dormant period to produce flowers....

(Hardy Amaryllis, Johnson's Florist Amaryllis, Johnson's Hippeastrum, St. Joseph's Lily)

A remarkably cold-hardy "amaryllis" resulting from a circa-1800 cross between two South American species, this bulbous perennial is prized for its showy spring flowers and its tough constitution.

Clumps of broad, strap-shaped, dark green leaves give rise to one to four knee-high flower stems (called "scapes") in mid-spring. The leaves turn bronze tones in sun. Each scape bears as many as six flaring, trumpet-shaped, scarlet-red blooms with white mid-stripes on each of their six segments. The...

(Spanish Bluebell)

Spanish bluebell is a vigorous bulbous perennial notable for its clusters of bluebell-like flowers which arise in mid to late spring. It naturally inhabits woodlands and shaded, rocky areas in southwestern Europe and North Africa.

The broad, long, strap-shaped basal leaves of Spanish bluebell are lax, somewhat glossy and form dense clumps in spring. Its conical flower clusters are borne well above the leaves on upright flower stems. Each cluster comprises up to 15 erect or horizontal, broadly...

(Bluebell)

One of the signature wildflowers in woodlands of England and western Europe, this spring-blooming bulbous perennial has long been treasured for its dainty clusters of violet-blue flowers.

Small, conical, underground bulbs give rise to long, glossy, strap-shaped leaves in early spring. Arching, one-sided clusters of 6 to 12 nodding, honey-scented blooms are borne in mid-spring atop slender, arching, calf-high flower stems. The tube-shaped flowers have six back-curving lobes at their tips. The...

(Hyacinth)

Early-blooming with an intoxicating fragrance, common hyacinth (Hyacinth orientalis) has long been a flowering bulb favorite for spring gardens and indoor forcing. Far less well known are the two other species of Hyacinth, H. litwinowii and H. transcapsicus, also native to the eastern Mediterranean and western Asia.

Growing from squat, rounded bulbs with papery coverings, these herbaceous perennials are best known for their cylindrical...

(Hyacinth)

Hyacinth is the familiar perennial bulb grown for its upright clusters of highly fragrant tightly-packed waxy flowers. Imported long ago from its home in western Asia, it has been bred extensively, mainly by Dutch growers, to produce a range of colors from white through yellow and pink to red, blue and purple, ss many as 40 flowers in each cluster.

Hyacinth grows and flowers best in well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. In damp conditions, it is prone to molds and rot. Plant the bulbs...
