When buying Amaryllis belladonna, be sure to ask for pictures of the actual bulbs to avoid purchasing the wrong plant. Many sellers sell with the incorrect name and images. See Picture two for proper Flower and bulb identification. Because of its similarity to Lycoris squamigera, many sellers (even nurseries) mistake the two plants.

Amaryllis belladonna is an amazing plant that produces clumps of bold, strappy leaves in fall and winter. The showy foliage dies down by early summer and bare stalks emerge after about six weeks – a surprising development because the leafless stalks appear to grow directly from the soil. These bare stalks are why the plant is often known as “naked lady.” Each stalk is topped with a cluster of up to 12 sweet-smelling, trumpet-shaped blooms in shades of rosy pink. Amaryllis belladonna is native to South Africa. It is definitely a plant that thrives on neglect.

Beautiful pink flowers appear on black/deep burgundy stems after foliage has died back, hence the common name "Pink Naked Ladies".
This is the Amaryllis Belladonna SPECIES from South Africa - not to be confused with Lycoris, which has a similar growth habit but smaller blossoms. The best difference is that Belladonna will produce and reproduce by seed, while the Lycoris species is sterile.

Amaryllis belladonna performs best in climates with warm, dry summers. A location with a protected southern exposure is ideal. Plant the bulbs in well-drained soil, about 6 to 12 inches (15 to 30.5 cm.) apart. If you live in an area that receives a great deal of rainfall, perhaps try planting in raised bed areas - or along the Gulf Coast if you have sandy, fast-draining soil.

Site the bulbs just below the surface of the soil if you live in a cold winter climate. If you live in a climate where temps remain above 15 F, plant the bulbs so the tops are level with the surface of the soil, or slightly above.

For spectacular impact, plant amaryllis belladonna bulbs in groups of three or more.

Amaryllis belladonna is reliably hardy up to Zone 7, or areas that only receive light frosts. Mulch heavily in winter to protect from frost and freezes.

Additional Info DO YOU GUARANTEE YOUR PLANTS?
We guarantee we will ship a healthy plant. There is no guarantee that your plant will survive and thrive in your space. Plants are living and perishable things. They require proper environment and care. Happy plants don't happen by accident.

We choose the healthiest plants in our inventory to ship to our customers. Once a plant is delivered to you it is beyond our control. We can no longer care for the plant, so you will have to, in order to keep it happy and healthy.

We are familiar with all the plants we sell. We grow from seed and cuttings. We propagate from mother and stock plants. Some plants are grafted. If you are having an issue with your plant, contact us so we can help with any issues at an early stage.

I RECEIVED MY PLANT BUT IT DIED SEVERAL DAYS LATER. CAN I GET A REFUND OR REPLACEMENT?
No. Once a plant is in your possession, it must be cared for by you. Care includes WATERING your plant. With the except of succulents, potted plants must be watered daily, especially in warm months.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY PLANT?
We include care sheets for most plants. These are general guidelines.

Please Google care tips for your plant in your zone.

If you fail to heed the advice given, or do not research care for your plant, your plant may fail to thrive. Happy plants don't happen by accident.

I LIVE IN A HOT AREA WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES, WILL MY PLANT THRIVE HERE?
An unwatered plant in a container in the sun can die within 24 hours. The smaller the container, the more often water is needed.

Please do not order rare and/or expensive plants without researching if it will do well in your zone and what care your plant may need. I have no way of knowing about your climate, whether or not you're an experienced gardener, if you have a greenhouse or not, or how you intend to care for your plant.

Most people will not take greenhouse grown plants and then place them in the hot sun all day without watering. Unfortunately, some people do this and expect a refund after they've killed the plant. We are not here to fund your gardening attempts. Our plants are geared more towards experienced gardeners.

SHOULD POTTED PLANTS BE WATERED DAILY?
You should check potted plants daily in warm, dry conditions.

In summer, watering outdoor potted plants is necessary daily (and even twice a day) for most species, especially when temperatures reach over 85 degrees.

Watering PROPERLY is important. Proper watering means soaking the entire rootball. It doesn't mean wetting the leaves. It also doesn't mean waiting until the soil is dry.
