The holidays wouldn’t be the holidays without Amaryllis. ‘Red Lion’ is possibly the most popular of all Amaryllis. Renowned for its breathtaking color and classic Amaryllis flower shape, each sturdy stem bears multiple dramatic flowers with thick velvety petals of rich, radiant, fire-engine red. White stamens curve gracefully from the center of each flower, and strap-shaped leaves complete the vision of pure holiday delight. ‘Minerva’ is a strikingly beautiful flower. The thick, sturdy stem produces multiple cheerful red flowers overlaid with a white star and veining that extends from the lime green throat down each petal. Quick to bloom with its classic Amaryllis flower shape, it can be grown in any room of the house and even in office cubicles. A pure delight, ‘Minerva’ will soon become a holiday tradition. If you’re searching for an Amaryllis that is spectacularly beautiful and markedly different from the standard solid color varieties, ‘Apple Blossom’ is just what you’re looking for. Slightly fragrant white flowers with soft pink feathering bloom atop a sturdy stem surrounded by strap-shaped leaves. The throat of each flower is lime green, and gently curved stamens fading from green to white reach out gracefully from the center of each bloom. In addition and perhaps the easiest to grow of all indoor bulbs, Paperwhites ‘Ziva’ continue to be perennial holiday favorites. Bloomsz now brings you a very affordable way to enjoy these all-time favorites with a 7-bulb pack of bloomsz Economy Paperwhites ‘Ziva’. Although somewhat smaller in size than the more expensive bulbs found in the marketplace today, our ‘economy’ bulbs are nonetheless dramatic and beautiful when planted and displayed in decorative, themed, or clear glass containers. Our collection contains 1 each Amaryllis ‘Red Lion,’ ‘Minerva’ and ‘Apple Blossom,’ 22/24 cm; plus 12 Paperwhites ‘Ziva,’ 14/15 cm.

Shady patios can be beautified with our three container plants that will not only thrive but also provide color that is often lacking in shade garden collections. The Astilbe and Hosta are true perennials that not only come back year after year, but they will also live a very long time.
Astilbe bear showy pink, plume-like flowers on tall, stiff stalks above fern-like, glossy foliage. Hosta’s large, bold leaves have various shapes. Some leaves have deep green centers and creamy white margins that turn snowy white with age, and others have light green leaf centers that turn gold toward early summer Mauve or pale lavender funnel-shaped flowers bloom atop long scapes in mid-summer.
Among the easiest to grow of all perennials
Both Hostas and Astilbe love plenty of water, so be sure the containers receive adequate rainfall or water
Fast-growing and often fragrant
Can be divided every 3-4 years or thereafter as containers become crowded
Prefer shady spots protected from strong afternoon sun
There is no better way to bring color, fragrance, and beauty to the garden than with the Bloomsz Trumpet Lily Bulb Collection. Large, trumpet-shaped flowers in shades of white, yellow, orange, pink, and lavender are highlighted by graceful green foliage. Trumpet Lilies can also be grown successfully in containers on patios, decks, and even on balconies in urban high-rises.
Large fragrant flowers
Cut only the length of the stem needed for the vase, leaving the rest to die off naturally and provide the nutrients the bulb requires to produce the following year’s blooms
Carefully remove anthers before placing the flowers in vases to prevent pollen from dropping onto fabrics
Before placing in vases, remove leaves below the water line
Remove old blooms and place in compost piles, where their acid-reducing properties help to condition the compost
