Black Pearl Amaryllis

The illustrious Black Pearl Amaryllis (Amaryllis ‘Black Pearl’) is a dramatic, large flowering perennial bulb with deep, dark burgundy-red petals! Each with a gorgeous sheen that catches the light and shines!

These huge blooms can have multiple buds and each large bulb can feature 2-3 shoots! Plant in a container in the fall, Black Pearl then begins to bloom that winter. The blooms can last for several weeks! The strappy green foliage and strong stems are perfect for showcasing these enormous blooms! These large bulbs can grow several 6-10 inches tall and will need a protected location out of the wind.

Amaryllis are fast-growing bulbs that love the bright sunlight. Plant in a pot and enjoy the blooms all winter in your home. Then after the long-lasting blooms are done, keep the green foliage in a bright, sunny window, or on a warm climate porch or patio.
