I grow both of these but they bloom very seldom but grow great.Nerine Stefani blooms for me each year late in the season. The Amaryllis belladonna sometimes bloom great for me but I have discovered that the ones that have Brunsvigia genetics bloom more frequently and are more freeze resistance. I also now grow several types of Brunsvigia outside after I saw Tony Avent growing them outside without protection.

George, do you grow Nerine bowdenii and N. sarniensis? And if so, do they bloom 
egularly  for you?

oth grow well in a cold frame for me here in zone 7a Maryland, but they are 
ery erratic about blooming. Nerine sarniensis has been outside in that cold 
rame 24/7/365 since 2005. It has bloomed three times during that period. 

maryllis belladonna has been in the same frame for just as long and has become 
 corpulent space hog - and has yet to bloom even once.
