|A tropical native with large showy blooms, Amaryllis can only be grown outdoors in Zones 9 through 11. Elsewhere, grown indoors or in greenhouses for winter bloom, they put on a magical display of fast growth, climaxing in a tremendous bouquet of lily-like flowers on a single stalk. Leaves may appear with bloom or after. Flowers come in red, pink, white, salmon and near-orange, and some are marked or striped.
Hippeastrum is often confused with its relative, Amaryllis. Be aware that these are more frost tender.
