All of them....

Is your zone warm enough to plant in your garden.

I did one and was shocked it lived and came up.

I've never tried them in my garden, I don't think they would survive our winters and I don't want to risk losing them either.

Although Belladonna might, and maybe I'll try it next fall.

Alfresco Is magical! That & joker are my favorites so far.

In Florida we can leave them in ground permanently. The problem we have is that they tend to "sink" in our sand. So every so many years we have to dig & lift to their proper depth again.

It' always something.... Shrug!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Yup. It's always somethin' for sure.

Bet they are pretty growing and blooming outside, though.
Oh I know!! You could build a little underground hammock, tied at each end to an above ground thing, like a tree. Maybe a mesh wire hammock. Then, plant your Amaryllis above the underground hammock. With the hammock beneath it, it couldn't sink. Yeah. That would work. Problem solved.
See?

Keep thinkin'! The mother of invention & all that you know. Actually that's not a bad idea --- hmmmmm..... needs slight modification but not bad, not bad at all.

Off to bed. Had to cook up a lot of stuff tonight. Freeze for breakfasts.
