" There's a few people trying to
cross Amaryllis and Nerine at the moment, give it ten years and we might see
quite a few nice bulbs being produced."

I purchased a bulb last year that is a nerine (white) crossed with Amaryllis Belladonna.  The flower looks just like a nerine but very large. It bloomed again this year, very hardy for me in zone 21 (Sunset) Southern California, San Gabriel valley near Pasadena
