Saturated red blooms with double the petals, the Double Dragon Amaryllis (Hippeastrum 'Dragon') takes the already giant blooms of the Amaryllis and then multiplies them times two! Enormous symmetrical blooms have a brilliant saturated pure-red hue that adds vibrant color to your indoor décor when you need it most!

Sporting several buds on each stem, these large bulbs can often form 2-3 shoots that rise above the vertical leaves! The strong stems are perfect for holding up the enormous flowers! The long-lasting bloom time of Amaryllis is combined with fast growth and strappy green foliage.

Double Dragon is a winter-blooming perennial bulb that can typically bloom just in time for the holidays! Amaryllis are beautiful gift items that are absolutely breathtaking! Nature Hills ships fall-planted bulbs based on your climate and growing zone at the right growing time for you!

Planting and Application:

Gorgeous Double Dragon just radiates indoors! Grow in front of a bright indirectly sunny window in your home or sunroom! Include one in a unique indoor planter, bulb-forcing vase, or mossy urn to showcase their outstanding blossoms anywhere in your home! Plant in mixed holiday planters to use the blooms as focal points and the greenery as filler and color! The foliage looks great all growing season, even after the blooms are done.

Outdoors, Double Dragon is a fantastic accent in the garden, porch pots, or mixed planter, during the summer in warm pf zones 9-10, and then be brought indoors before the cold weather. These magnificent, exotic flowers attract butterflies and bees! When in bloom, these are dramatic specimens, especially when grouped together for eye-catching displays anywhere!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Provide a full sun to part shade location outdoors, and a bright yet indirect sun location indoors to keep the stems and leaves standing strong. Amaryllis bulbs should be planted in enriched, well-drained soil, pointed end up, with the neck and top third of the bulb above the soil. Water and mulch well. They dislike soggy conditions and will rot.

Keep the handsome foliage intact and place them in a bright indirectly sunny window to make food for the bulb, or keep it in a pot or planter outside with other perennials to showcase the gorgeous greenery if you are growing outside! Amaryllis can be kept in a cool dark place once dormant like Canna or Dahlias.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Moderately Moist Well-Drained Soil
  • Deadhead After Bloom & Clean Mound When Leaves Yellow
  • Mulch Well
  • Dislikes Soggy Soil
