New in the Greenhouse: Poinsettias and Amaryllis

The greenhouse here at Ah Sam is filled with seasonal buds and blooms perfect for adding festive cheer to a home or business. In bloom are hand-selected poinsettias and amaryllis featured in urban gardens and singular sensations for side tables, buffets, centerpieces or an entry. The varieties and colors can enhance any space and holiday celebration.


Poinsettias are commonly associated with the winter holidays, as the rich redof the flower and green of the leaves are a popular Christmas plant. This season, we’ve added creamy white and pastel pink poinsettias, available in several sizes, set in ceramic or basket containers. We love pairing smaller flowering and green plants in rustic or natural containers for eye-catching tabletop gardens. Rich green leaves indicate the health of this naturally tropical plant, and if kept at temperatures between 60 and 70 degrees will continue to grow for the season.


Amaryllis is a wonderful winter favorite for brightening up a winter day. These South African natives have a variety of colors, but we’re featuring the classic red and white blooms as an accent to any room. Our double blooming amaryllis can be a lovely holiday centerpiece. Ideally, they should be kept at temperatures of 68 to 70 degrees F and can be planted outdoor for blooms year after year

Poinsettias and amaryllis are both wonderful additions to any space and as gifts for the ones you know and love as well We’ll continue to feature additional growing gifts in our greenhouse. Visit us in San Mateo to take home a blooming plant or we’ll gladly arrange to deliver your gift.
