Let’s Plant Paperwhites and Amaryllis for Winter Cheer!
Planting paperwhites to bloom through the end of year holiday’s and on through the bleakest of winter has become somewhat a tradition for Gardeners Connect. Though we cannot all get together and revel in the containers each gardener selects for their planting we can still have bulbs to take home with us to plant.
We will be offering both ‘Ziva’ the traditional white full fragrance paperwhites as well as ‘Inbal’ its lightly scented to non-scented cousin. Both varieties are the largest bulbs available on the market. We are also offering two amaryllis selections ‘Dancing Queen’ and ‘Red Nymph’. ‘Dancing Queen’ has huge double white flowers with vivid red brush strokes that give this amaryllis an almost candy cane like appearance. ‘Red Nymph’ has huge double red flowers with subtle white accents that should bring on holiday spirit and brighten even the darkest of Winter days.
Order your bulbs online at shop.gardenersconnect.org and your bulbs will be available for pick up at the home of Gardeners Connect board member Bibie Chronwall, 1022 W 64th Terr, Kansas City, MO 64112 on Saturday November 7, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Her house is just east of Ward Parkway. Your order will be pack an available for non-contact pick up in her garage.
Orders will include all instructions needed to plant your bulbs and grow them on to flower.
Paperwhites are 5 bulbs for $10 and the amaryllis are $22 each. You will fill your home or those of someone special with beautiful flowers and support Gardeners Connect in the process.
