Requiring little attention, the Wax Dipped Amaryllis bulb produces multiple strap-like leaves and two stems which will explode into dramatic, trumpet-like blooms (with a fair wind), in time for Christmas. Recently the exotic splash of colour produced by the amaryllis flower has become associated with festivities, and is especially welcome as a present.

Our wax amaryllis bulbs will be coming back in November 2024. Sign up to be the first to know when they arrive.


These Amaryllis hail from South America and are known botanically as Hippeastrum. The name was coined by William Herbert, an early 19th-century botanist, trained in Oxford, who likened the hippeastrum flower to a knight’s star, which was a mediaeval spiked weapon akin to a mace. (Hippeus means knight, astron means star.)

Amaryllis in Flower

  • Wax coating
  • The colour coating should reflect the colour of the flower, but because this is a natural product we cannot guarantee the outcome
  • Steel wire stand
  • Requires a well lit, cool room, avoid direct sunlight
  • Rotate ever few days to encourage straight growth
  • Because they are dipped in wax the large bulbs require no feeding or watering

At average room temperatures, waxed amaryllis begin flowering in about 4 to 6 weeks, producing stalks with up to four blooms per stalk. Keep in a well-lit room, but avoid direct sunlight. Rotate every couple of days to encourage more symmetrical growth.
