> Hippeastrums are much tougher than you think. I mentioned earlier
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.
