I buy lots of amaryllis bulbs every fall- pot them & give them as Xmas presents when they start to spike. You can order exotic varieties. I plant mine outside (zone 8) after & they bloom in the spring afterwards (usually the next year,) It's so nice to have something pretty blooming in the winter- some will bloom later, into February.
Eucomis bicolor Care: Plant bulbs 6 inches deep, in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. In cooler climates, plant in containers for garden display and overwinter in a frost free location. Water freely in active growth; they do best if dry when dormant.
