Sweet Dream Amaryllis is a family-run nursery, owned and operated by Mike and Shellie Sweet in Valrico, Florida. We became interested in amaryllis while living in Australia, where we were introduced by friends to the Maguires and their Maguire's Hippeastrum Farm. The family business lifestyle was appealing, and upon our return to the U.S. in 2003 we began to make this dream a reality.
Mick and Nelli Maguire's over 25 years of hybridizing amaryllis has produced an extensive collection, and we have imported and propagated over 100 different types. Their plants are bred to perform in Australia's climate, which is very similar to the United States, making these bulbs well suited to our gardens. Our original stock of 70 varieties, approximately 350 bulbs, has grown to over 20,000. We are also now several years into hybridizing our own new varieties.
We hope you enjoy browsing our site, and we welcome inquiries. Amaryllis give us a spring full of outstanding color, and an almost year-round green, vibrant landscape plant. The bulbs are long-living, and their offsets will expand your display every year.
