Sprekelia formosissima wintered outside against a wall here for years.
However, plants dug and stored dry for the winter bloomed much more
reliably. I doubt that the ground ever froze much near that wall – almost
any herbaceous plant which does not grow actively during the winter will
survive there. 

What is the Hippeastrum parent of the nothogenus ×Hippeastrelia?
