Hi Gang,

An email friend sent me Hippeastrum reginae in a trade.  I'm trying to 
determine if it will need special care here along the Gulf Coast of Texas. 
Many Hippeastrum hybrids do fine in gardens if they have good drainage and 
lots of sun.

I wonder if H. reginae will do OK in the garden, if it will tolerate USDA 
zone 9a frosts, and if it can accept year round rain.  On the other hand, 
perhaps I should grow it in a pot and put it away for winter?


Conroe, TX
Nice sunny weather all week, lows near 50 F and highs about 75 F.  C. moorei 
is in bloom this week; the white flowers hold up nicely in the cool weather.
