Let a Window-Blooming Amaryllis Feed Your Flower Hunger Until Spring
With all that winter white outside, it’s hard to believe that in just a few months (okay, maybe more than “just”) it will be time to bring our gardens back to life again. In the meantime, if you’re missing the beauty and refreshing that blooming flowers can bring, it’s possible to add an early spring touch to your home by potting some amaryllis on your window sill. You may be able to find some after-Christmas specimens in home stores or garden centers since they’re a popular holiday gift. If not, bulbs you plant now should be in bloom by mid-March.
An amaryllis like this one can add a vibrant touch to your home, and when the weather is warm enough, you can transplant it into your garden, following the planting and care information in this Better Homes and Gardens’ article. The giant plate-size blooms and long stalks provide an attention focus, not to mention a welcome relief from winter’s drabness.
At Architectural Landscape Design our quest is to help Minneapolis area property owners bring their landscape and gardening visions to life, and in the winter that sometimes means ideas for indoor spaces, too. If you have questions about whether an amaryllis or two might work in your landscape, give us a call.
