description for "Amaryllis: Hippeastrum 'Las Vegas'"

'Las Vegas' is as splashy as its name! The watermelon-red center is accented with a white star center. 'Las Vegas' has blossoms that span 9 inches wide that are borne on 18-inch stalks. Even a novice gardener can undertake a great holiday planting project with easy-to-grow amaryllis bulbs. Just drop a bulb into a clay pot filled with potting soil place in a sunny window and water. In just six to eight weeks, you'll have a harvest of colorful blooms atop two or three flower stalks. The size of the bulb you buy counts! -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
