Hi Nick
   You've started an interesting thread!  I live on the opposite coast from you, 
but still zone 7.  I've found that the foliage of the Zephyranthes  I grow 
suffer too much outside, even in a sheltered area.  I grow them in what is a 
cross between a window box and a cold frame (I took out a window, and glassed in 
an area against the house about 20 dm by 7 dm with a sloping glass top that 
averages about 5 dm.  in height.)  The Z. grandiflora are in bloom now (my 
first, from seed), and the Z. macrosiphon has just finished.
