Growing Amaryllis in Texas

I live in San Antonio, TX but I do not know my zone. Can amaryllis thrive in the yard? It gets hot here in the summer. Could I plant them under a crape myrtle? Is special soil required? Thank you.

Here's a link to your zone finder:

You should not have a problem growing amaryllis outside, in the ground or potted. My Aunt lives in Houston and has actually pollinated her own amaryllis' and grows all of her's outside. Remember not to bury the bulb completely. My Aunt's bloom beautifully every year in a shady area, so under crepe myrtle should be an excellent place.

Good luck,

Tina
