If you have enjoyed a potted Amaryllis blooming in mid-winter, than you have met the Amaryllis family. Members of this family are typically perennial plants that resprout each year from underground bulbs. The leaves are usually somewhat juicy and tender, rather than fibrous.
Key Words: Monocots with onion-like bulbs and juicy leaves. Flowerheads wrapped in a bract.
