Tim Palmyra, VA (Zone 7a) Look like amaryllis, but don't know the name.
tiG Newnan, GA (Zone 8a) I'm so jealous! they are just stunning!
Terry Murfreesboro, TN (Zone 7a) Are they a crinum of some kind?
Jerseyguy Princeton, NJ (Zone 6a) It's one of the dutch hybrid amaryllis (Hippeastrum). There are so many varieties that look similar it's hard to tell exactly which you have, could be "Clown" or "Fairy Tale" just to name a few. Amaryllis are perfectly hardy in your zone and quite possibly into zone 7 with a deep winter mulch. I will be experimenting with these to see just how hardy they are.
nicole_in_nc Wilmington, NC I was really surprised to hear a bulb produces seed!??! I need to do some more studying!
Thank you so much for the info... Ill go search for Amaryllis websites to identify further... hopefully!?!
