For what it's worth, we saw Amaryllis Belladonna in the wild twice on our trip to
the cape last February. Both times it was on the edge of a wet place, once by a pond
and once just by a drainage ditch, plenty of sun in both places.
It's a lovely plant.

I grew Amaryllis belladona outdoors, year round, (under roof overhang, I

admit) and it flowered reliably.?

Judy, I?m really intrigued by your success with Amaryllis belladonna. How
did you protect the foliage during the winter?
