Could someone with experience growing Amaryllis belladonna tell me if  
it's common for this species to skip flowering after cold winters?

I've had bulbs in my yard for 3 years, flowering for two of them,  
Last winter was colder than usual for this area, with lows around 14  
F.  Foliage died back during the snow, came back after the coldest  
weather was past, then died down in late spring. Then summer came,  
and came further, and still, in August, no flowers. The bulbs came  
from a local garden where they'd grown for many decades, and without  
skipping flowering, year after year.
