There are a few groups to the amaryllis flower family and this one in particular is called the Spider Amaryllis. It is an exotic variation to the usual elegant, trumpet-shaped flower. The thin, enthrallingly reflexed petals have a red-coloured heart which spill out onto an elegant white petal.
On any tropical Christmas day, the slender, curved, chocolate-brown petals of the Spider Amaryllis will seem to flirt with your holiday guests like the batting of long, curled eyelashes. This unique bloom will most certainly add a playful touch to the festive season.
It has a vase life of 5 to 10 days. Tape the stems of the Amaryllis to prevent them from splitting or cracking. Once the bloom is open, remove the pollen carefully to prevent staining the petals.
Single variety flowers come wrapped in brown paper with a water bag. This ensures sufficient hydration for the flowers so that they remain fresh between the time it is put together and when the recipient receives it.
Here are the number of stalks you will find in each size:
Small — 3 stalk
Standard — 6 stalks
Large — 10 stalks
The spider amaryllis is a tall-stemmed variety, ideal for dining tables, entrance tables, console tables and bar top centrepieces.
