They are from the Amaryllis family. They are best when planted in the Fall, but can be planted any time. These bulbs grow quickly into pretty wide strap-look green leaves. When they bloom in the Summer or late Summer, even into the early Fall, they are really stunning -- with 6 white spidery-look blooms all together yet forming a sort of cylindrical shape at the top of the plant. You will notice the date stamp on my photos...these blooms were in mid-July. When I first got the plants into the ground, they did not bloom the first year. But, it is worth the wait when you see the gorgeous blooms. Even when they are not in bloom, the long green leaves are very lush and beautiful. The plants multiply as bulb plants tend to do, which is why I thin them out from time to time. In the cold months, the leaves get a bit rough-looking, but they survive the freezing temps that befall us occasionally here in Texas. I have never covered them. Cash only please. (1372)
