What about Haemanthus humilis then?.... for me it is in growth for the
second half of the Summer and the first half of Winter.... I think of it as
an Autumn grower! Crocosmias here are producing their new growth now along
with the winter growers, but they continue on through the Summer until next
winter... but will pause growth as the cold periods of winter happen.

Evergreen plants also have their periods of growth and rest, Haemanthus
carneus is evergreen for me but it grows its new leaves in Summer,
Haemanthus deformis is also evergreen for me but it is growing its new
leaves now alongside deciduous winter growers.
