    They are but they bloom at different times there is another that blooms at Easter.They come in lots of different colors. They need very bright light no sun,kept dry then watered really well then really dry again,no drafts,do not like being moved sometimes even just turning pot when they have blooms could cause them to fall off,don't like to be transplanted,keeping them rootbound in pot produces more blooms,warm area,pot with really good drainage, I give mine water soluble Miracle grow 2x year
