Make It Rein(deer) features amaryllis and wintergreens sourced directly from our trusted growers. Rest assured that they're the freshest stems around!
Best known for their long stems and trumpet-like blooms, amaryllis are the quintessential holiday flower as they grow locally throughout November and December.
Amaryllis arrive in closed buds as they are fresh from the grower, meaning you will be able to enjoy their beauty as they open over the coming days. Watching them bloom is part of the fun! If you need them open for an event, we recommend ordering 4-5 days in advance.
The vase arrangement contains water that may spill during travel, so it's important to add more water immediately upon receipt. See our recommended instructions below to best care for your amaryllis.
To maximize the life of your amaryllis:
Remove the arrangement from the box - be extra careful as the vases contain water and the flowers are delicate.
Add water immediately! To do so, in a separate container, mix a sprinkle of provided flower food with room temperature water and carefully pour into the vase. Hang onto the packet for future waterings and repeat this step daily to prolong the life of your blooms.
Keep the flowers in a cool, dry environment away from direct sunlight and heat.
Guard petals (the dry whiteish outer petals) on the amaryllis are intentionally left on as they protect the bloom during transit. As the amaryllis bloom, these petals will naturally peel back and hang. feel free to gently remove them, if you wish.
Some flowers will bloom faster than others and at different times. Remove stems as they expire to keep the others blooming bright!
