There are a zillion different amaryllis cultivars out there – a plethora of colors and flower shapes – singles or doubles, extra large or some smaller options. They make the best show in a garden if grouped and need about a foot of space between each large-sized bulb. They will slowly multiply and make a stunning display and give you wonderful cut flowers to bring inside. Don’t let them go to seed unless you are addicted to propagating -- you can find directions on how to sow the seeds and after a few years see what in the world you get – these plants are hybrids and so won’t come true from seed. If you have a heavy soil, you may want to make a raised area for these bulbs and be cautious not to over irrigate – although carefree, rot is an enemy.
