Amaryllis bulbs are among the easiest plants to grow we'll show you how. But first, you should know that an Amaryllis is really a Hippeastrum. Hippeastrums are in the genus Ammaryllidacea (a family of flowering plants) which is the source of the confusion. The true Amaryllis consists of a single species, Amaryllis belladonna, also known as "naked ladies". However, there are more than 50 species of Hippeastrum. We will use the popular name , Amaryllis, though you will also see them referred to elsewhere, more correctly, as Hippeastrum.
