Hippeastrum papilio

Mine is most definitely evergreen, or tries to be.  It was in leaf all
summer, it's in leaf now, and despite being kept quite cold (or possibly
because if it) it seems to be putting out new growth.

Just to place it: it dates back to when H. papilio was being sold by
Wayside Gardens, and my mother sent me three.  That was probably - what? -
20 or 30 years ago?
