Does anyone else have to grow their amaryllis as houseplants?
I'm so envious of gardeners who can grow them outdoors. My experience with them has always been as houseplants. I had my biggest collection of bulbs when I lived in Maine as I was so desperate through the long winters to have something in flower. I couldn't bring them with me when I came home. I had quite a collection a few years ago but now live in a tiny bungalow so don't have any room for them.
They are such wonderful easy plants.

I have some indoors but I have a hard time getting them to rebloom. Outdoors in the ground they bloom effortlessly and the plants never go dormant.

with big strappy leaves, clogging up all the sunny windows, just for those irresistible blooms once a year Hilarious! to let me know that spring is right around the corner...
I suppose that I could haul them outside for the summer but I don't. I haul the bigger plants out and let the bulbs stretch their wings in the windows--where I can keep them from frying and remember to water them enough.
Mine all find their own schedule after their first year. I do have two blooming now in honor of the celebration week Hurray! and the rest will do their thing sometime between now and about the end of March.

Sue, what a marvelous collection you had! I've really enjoyed all of the photos that you have submitted.
