"The Amaryllis is a bulbous plant that has become increasingly popular as a cut flower. New varieties and colours are being introduced each year and there seems to be no end to the inventiveness of the breeders: there are single and double amaryllis, large or small bells, striped and streaked ones and they come in red, purple, orange, pink and white. The amaryllis is such a grand flower in its own right it scarcely needs other flowers. Even so, a little foliage, like olive branches or eucalyptus, can look beautiful. When you buy amaryllis there is often a stick inside the stalk and a rubber band at the end. Leave these in place: the stick supports the stalk and the rubber band prevents it curling up. The season for amaryllis is September until the end of May but it is most common around Christmas. It lasts for up to two weeks."
