Hi deebie,

I'm not familiar with that bulb at all, so did a little searching. No zone info found, but found where a member in NC was trading them. You might try emailing him for more info, and his zone.

Well...if you mean Scadoxus multiflorus, which used to be included in the genus Haemanthus, mine winter over here just fine, as long as they're in a spot where water drains rapidly during the winter months. They are summer/autumn growers which bloom at the beginning of their growth cycle, around July 1 here, and they enjoy our generally warm, extended autumn growing season. The true Haemanthus species tend to be winter growers, so I haven't tried any of them in the ground yet.
