Re: AMaryllis

Amaryllis are somewhat hardy.  When I was growing up in the 
Florida panhandle, my grandmother had an Amaryllis growing
in the ground - she called it a "milk-and-wine-lily" - that came 
back every year and was enormous.  The bulbs, which 
multiplied, would be four or five inches in diameter, and the
flower stalks would be 3 feet high.  There were quite a few
freezing days each winter, but the Amaryllis didn't seem to 
be bothered.  None that I have  grown in pots have been 
nearly so large.  I have read that to rebloom them - which I
have done numerous times - you need two leaves for each
bloom stalk.  I don't know this from personal experience - 
just something I read somewhere.

Noreen - I have one Jesse got me years ago.  Planted it on the South side of
the house right near the dryer vent, and it comes back every year,
remarkably enough.
