Collecting Hippeastrums and Hippeastrum hybrids is my most recent hobby.
Here are a few H. Charismas from this year.

they remind me of Christmas candies—all the red and white.
Such intense colours!

Those are gorgeous. You are making me think I should collect them too, but the question arises, “Where could I possibly put them in my small lot?”

my problem as well. the time they flower I display them all over, but for the rest of the year I have to deal with the many pots not knowing where to best stash them. I usually lose a few each summer due to the tropical rains :-/
of course they are not expensive to replace right after Christmas :D

You keep yours in pots as opposed to in the ground? Is there a benefit to that, other than just moving them around?

Thank you for your comments. I absolutely love having them!
I will move all but a couple indoors to see how hardy they are in the winter in zone 8a…my johnsonii are kept outside all year, but they are the hardiest of all the amaryllis.
