Hi Ken

Haemanthus albiflorus and Haemanthus pauculifolius are evergreen in pots here.

Haemanthus coccineus started sending up leaves in early September - 

the pot of 3 has 2 smooth leaves and 1 fuzzy leaf  but they all came as H. coccineus. i wonder about their identity.  the other pot of coccineus is fuzzy. 
Veltheimia bracteata sent up new leaves in August and now flower buds are present- i grow these in shade on my porch but we had a freeze warning a week ago so they are now in my basement under lights.

Veltheimia bracteata seedlings started in June are now sending up green on porch.

Veltheimia capensis in a sunny spot in a pot also sent up leaves in August shortly after i repotted it and watered it in.
