Amaryllis produces colorful flowers as an indoor plant throughout the winter months. It is often sold as a bulb with a decorative container and requires a bit of watering to coax out a rich floral display. They make for an excellent plant gift and a very easy way to bring the cheeriness of spring flowers into the winter months.
