“I want to send someone a gift that will last longer than generic flowers! What do you suggest I send someone this Christmas?” - Charlie, San Antonio

While we of course love all types of plants, flowering ones are often the most swoon worthy of them all. A fun route to take this year would be to send one of our new potted bulbs to those special people in your life.

From a bold pop of red with the Amaryllis 'Red Olaf' to a more understated Amaryllis 'White Denver' that produces crisp white flowers, both options will look stunning either kept at home or in an office space.

Prefer to gift a choice that the recipient will be able to watch grow from the start? The Amaryllis 'Top Choice' and Paperwhite 'Inbal' are younger bulbs that will be an exciting plant to watch mature and flourish!

One thing that all of these newbies have in common is that they love bright, full sunshine. Aside from this, these easygoing showstoppers are a gift anybody will love!
