This would be a great holiday gift for anyone who loves flowers. Amaryllis means to sparkle in Greek. In nature, amaryllis bloom in spring or summer, but are commonly forced into early bloom for the holidays. The U.S. imports more than 10 million amaryllis bulbs every year, mainly from Holland and South Africa. The flowers, up to 10 inches wide, top a stalk 18 to 36 inches tall and are often grown indoors to provide bright colors in a winter home. Amaryllis reproduce by growing "daughter" bulbs next to the "mother" bulbs. It takes three to five years for a daughter bulb to reach a marketable size. Properly cared for, an amaryllis plant can live for 75 years! Amaryllis make dramatic and long-lasting cut flowers. The genus Hippeastrum has yielded several substances with medically useful properties, one of which has shown promise as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease.
