Jim, when I grew Amarillis belladonna, they only started blooming for me 
after I moved them to a hot, sunny, dry spot, and that is in the 
equivalent of Zone 10.

This is planted in the ground, with bulbs mostly buried but with the necks exposed. It's in a well protected cold frame. It yearly produces a thick tuft of foliage, and the foliage is never damaged during the winter. Yet it has never bloomed. I drenched it with smoke water last year, and hope blooms eternal...
