  • I planted a re-gifted Christmas amaryllis in a large planter in January and basically left it alone
  • other than watering it occasionally. It grew to be a perfect specimen. I recommend amaryllis for amateur gardeners.

Q&A with kimberly.48864

buddog asked:
What zone do you live in? I've thought of trying to grow amaryllis outside but they are not hardy here and are mostly grown indoors around Christmas. Lovely plant!

I live in Zone 8 (North of Houston), and our lowest temperature this past winter was 17 degrees, with a high this summer so far of 105.
