For the last 4 years I have been planting Paper Whites at Christmas time. This past year I decided to add *Amaryllis* to our Christmas floral cheer. I planted both Paper White + Amaryllis bulbs the weekend after Thanksgiving. The Paper Whites dutifully and beautiful bloomed right before Christmas, but the Amaryllis barely had green growth. Finally, a week ago the Amaryllis bloomed...just in time for Valentine's Day (I guess).
