I can wholeheartedly endorse Jim Shields Crinums.  He shared some seeds of
hybrid origin with me over 10 years ago that have survived in my USDA zone
5 garden for the last 7 years outdoors (granted, planted on the south side
of the house near the basement foundation wall).  I shared a couple of
these plants with my sister-in-law for her new house in Central Texas a
couple of years back.  When I dug up the bulbs they were really large and
are thriving near Fredericksburg, Texas in their new home.
