Do you grow the clone of Hippeastrum evansii that was distributed by the 
Louisiana Society for Hort Research?  I saw this when I was there 
several years ago and they shared a bulb.  After only 1 year in the 
ground, it has spread over 1' away from the original bulb via offsets.  
It survived 17F in the ground (very mild for us) this winter with no 
problem.  The soft yellow flowers are absolutely stunning.  I think this 
will be a wonderful landscape bulb in areas where it is winter hardy.
