 Have you tried growing Eucomis in the ground?  Here in Knoxville, TN they grow wonderfully outdoors without even extra winter mulch.  You look like you're in about the same zone.

 Sequestered, here in New Jersey, I wandered down to the basement to 
stare at all the dirt-filled pots where hippeastrum, eucomis, etc are 
soundly sleeping, their withered brown leaves shabbily hanging over the 
edges of the pots.

But wait! What's this? Tucked back in the corner almost out of sight the 
pot of Eucomis pole-evansii must have decided to start growing quite 
some time ago. How did I determine this? The many long, over foot-long, 
ghostly pale leaves. Whoopsie!

Oh well. Today is shady so I feel safe bringing the pot upstairs out of 
the dark and putting it in the greenhouse. I always worry that too much 
sun on etiolated foliage will shock them into never turning green. If 
tomorrow has any sun I'll put white tissue paper over it to act as a 
filter. Need to look for thin bamboo stakes to create a support system. 
Another something that I cannot, these days, just drive to the store to get.
