I am not sure what temperatures you get down to in the winter however being in NZ you are probably a little colder than sub-tropical South America. Although many of the hippeastrum hybrids do well in the Southern parts of Australia they do like a northerly aspect. ( I do not come from Southern Australia however have read many reports on tactics to get less cold hardy plants to grow well down there).


In short they probably like the fact that the concrete paths heat up through the day and then gradually cool down through the night because of their physical mass and concretes ability to absorb the heat through the day. You might like to try them near brick walls etc that have a tendancy to retain a little extra energy releasing it gradually through the night.
