I think they will perish if planted in open garden beds.
Last year  lost the only two bulbs I had of Hippeastrum evansiae which were housed in a roofed shade house during  winter in zone 10.  The winter wasnt particularly cold (zone 10 -  warm temperate conditions)  with a minimum in winter of 2 degrees centigrade.

I have also grown  seedlings of evansii primary hybrids to flowering stage in garden beds - but noticed that they also remain susceptible to colder winter spells (-3 degrees), and most have perished since flowering.
