that they survived a freeze of -5o.  Everybody around here grows them
outside.  I remember seeing amarylis in bloom in a convention garden in
Memphis in 1989, so that tells you how far north they can survive outside. 

     I wish I could find some orange and purple ones I saw at the La
Convention in Layfayette, LA.
