While visiting with my grandfather last time I was in PA (2/19), he showed me his Amaryllis he was growing in the basement. Every spring he takes it out of the ground and puts it into a pot so that it doesn't die from the harsh winter, and replants it all over again the next spring. It blooms indoors with very little care. The actual color was less orange and more salmon, very tall and beautiful.
