Will amaryllis 'belladonna' grow in Bham?
Hello all, hope you can help.
Went to website of Southern Bulbs. When I clicked on this amaryllis it said that belladonna will only do well in California-- "do not try to grow them in any other state!" ( ! is theirs)
Is this true; has anyone in Ala gardenland ever grown these? They did not specify the problem. Does it get too hot here, or not enough chill hours? What gives?
I want a perennial to bloom late summer, between summer perennials and the aster/crysanthum bloom period. I saw some beautiful big pink amary growing a little south of Montgomery, can't remember the town right now. It was a HUGE stand growing beside a little concrete block business bldg. It obviously got no care, but had apparently been there a really long time to form such a big clump. After researching, I think belladonna is what I saw. Not positive, but the bloom period is right.
Please give me your thoughts/advice on this bulb. Thanks alot.
