The Amaryllis family is diverse with beautiful colors and combinations, and the large bulbs will bloom both indoors and outdoors in the warmer areas. I have had great success with them outside in Zone 8-9 where I live. For many years, I threw out the spent bulb rather than go through the re-blooming process of starting them with bottom heat etc. Re-blooming and planting directions for many bulbs are geared for cold climates.
The Amaryllis bulb will start to send up its spear like buds and may go onto bloom without being planted in soil! They are resilient and will take some neglect, but the blooms are breathtaking. I love to see a large planter with several bulbs bloom at the same time (use the same variety). The larger bulbs will have 2-3 stalks.
Sumatra is an unusual form and Half & Half is a variety that is interesting as well. Striped varieties like Ambiance offer a pleasing aspect as well, as do single or double choices.
After bloom, just remove the bulb with its roots and plant the bulb in a planter box or ground in warm areas. No muss, no fuss!
