Amaryllis belladonna is the true amaryllis, although the name is also commonly given to unrelated hippeastrum bulbs, which are grown indoors over winter. Amaryllis belladonna is a late-summer flowering bulb, bearing showy flowers on naked stems, before strap-like leaves appear in autumn. Grow it in large clumps, where its flowers can be fully appreciated. It makes a great planting partner for silver-grey leaved plants such as caryopteris. [Gardeners’ World]
