It should survive but I am surprised it hasn't bloomed so late in the season unless it hasn't reached the blooming age or size.

RE: amaryllis plant

I'm sure it will be OK as long as you did not seriously damage the bulb....if you just whacked off the leaves it will be fine...not happy, but fine!! If you damaged the bulb you might want to treat with something like Captan to avoid fungus and potential rot :o) Dan
