This is a blooming size bulb of a tomato soup colored flowering amaryllis or more correctly Hippeastrum. These are not imported bulbs and will be sent bare root with roots in damp sphagnum for quick and easy transplant. We have found them to bloom sporadically throughout the year here in South Florida. They do not attain the bulb size of most other amaryllis. Blooming size bulbs are about the size of a quarter. We try to ship even a bit larger . The original bulbs came from Thailand and may be a species type.
We ship hardgood items out within 24 hours but plants go out only on Mondays or Tuesdays weather permitting and circumstances beyond our control(Hurricanes in Florida, Riots in Florida for our votes not counting again, Freezing or above 95 degree temperatures in the rest of the country) This allows plenty of time for them to arrive before the weekend. If you want us to ship otherwise, we do not assume responsibility. Many of our plants take years to produce and we want them to arrive safely.
Sorry due to too many government regulations we can not ship plants internationally in small quantities. Insurance included with priority shipping! (However the post office does not insure perishables except that it will arrive)
Many times a package will be only slightly over the increment in shipping costs and there can be added at no additional shipping charge many of our items. We list many items that come in under 12 ounces and can often be included with no increase in shipping you are already paying. Just check out our FREE SHIPPING WITH PURCHASE* category. Please email me before adding these on as I will let you know if there is space and weight available, in your individual package to qualify for free shipping. Bruce
Local pickup is always encouraged, just make sure they are at the correct pickup location either in Boynton Beach or Loxahatchee. In most cases we can transfer items from one location to the other within 48 hours.
