Thanks for your comments, Hans-Werner. The photos were beautiful. 

I'll now remove "cold winters" from the prescription for Amaryllis
belladonna. Yet knowing that the plants you cite have minimum winter
temperatures of 13 degrees C only deepens my curiosity. There are many
places in eastern North America which can provide winter temperatures above
13 degrees C and provide summer temperatures over 30 degrees C easily. Yet
Amaryllis belladonna does not thrive. 

There must be more to the puzzle.
