can you cut the blooms on an amaryllis and use in a flower arrangement?
Yes, amaryllis make beautiful cut flowers! Here are a couple of links below. Jeana Myers
"Used as cut flowers, amaryllis will last for 6 to 12 days. Cut the stem neatly with a sharp knife and place into a tall container filled with water almost hot to the touch. Let the water cool for a few hours and then arrange. Amaryllis does best if not arranged in floral foam. Re-cut the stems every two to three days and repeat the hot water treatment. Keep flowers in a cool location at night."
