I have never tried to put a picture in before. It showed up when I previewed the posting, but not on the forum.

The link doesn't work for me either. Could you try copying the URL of the pic and then we could copy and paste it into a browser?

These plants are living outside year round -Not brought inside in winter like amaryllis or other tropical bulbs.

There are hardy amaryllis/Hippeastrums and I'm sure that is what those are.
