Summer/autumn blooming bulb
This is the true amaryllis, although the name is also commonly given to hippeastrum bulbs. A patch in full flower on a sunny autumn day is an inspiration, especially when planted next to grey-leafed plants or blue-flowered shrubs such as caryopteris. Once established - they make take a season or two to settle down after planting - the bulbs should not be disturbed because they need time to give their best. They enjoy a hot summer rest from late July until flowering time, so grow them against a warm wall. In cold gardens, planting the bulbs in large pots or tubs is an attractive alternative.
