Re: Amaryllis

Noreen, most Amaryllis that you get from the "store" and are forced into bloom early (Christmas or Easter) won't bloom for a few years. Same with paperwhites and others. The forcing knocks the wind out of them and they have to build their strength back up. At least that's what one professor taught me.

Mine that grew outside in Beaufort bloomed religiously every year, although they did go dormant in January & February (in the ground). Someone gave me one like you're talking about and the first year in the ground it did nothing, second year a spindly bloom, this year it's trying really hard, but still not great. When I get it back to BEaufort and leave it alone I suspect it will perform beautifully.

It stays outside year  round.

But in your climate you may be able to do that. I can't because they would
freeze. I don't know how you would allow them to go dormant.
