Not sure where you are David but the Amaryllis (belladonna) were at their best here (Bucks/UK) at the end of August and are now well over. Currently Nerine bowdenii are showing a few stems but no flowers yet. Some of the hybrids (eg. N. Zeal Giant) are showing colour but still to open. Don't think they are ever near one another in timing.
