Hippeastrum, commonly known as "amaryllis"

Popularly given as holiday gifts in recent years, the amaryllis [actually Hippeastrum, a genus of South American bulbous flowering plants, as opposed to the South African Amaryllis] are usually sold in kits that contain everything one needs to enjoy the flower's rebirth each year during these winter months. Tom Kasper explains that with proper care (and off season storage), an amaryllis can rebloom for many years.
