This small shrub is native to South Africa and grows 2-5 feet tall and requires shade or semi-shaded areas in order to thrive. It does not require a great deal of water and prefers moderate levels, so it is perfect for those who don't want to water plants often. Haemanthus albiflos produces clusters of off-white to white flowers that attract butterflies and hummingbirds and make for a lovely garden addition. It has also been used in ethnomedical practices.
Although it is originally from warmer climates, Haemanthus albiflos can be grown in USDA Zone 9-11, with some extra care. Keep in mind that if you live in an area with cold winters, it is best to grow it in a pot that you can bring indoors. When kept in a pot, it should be kept in a cool, dry area and watered sparingly during winter and more often during summer. Fertilize several times a year and use a mix specifically formulated for bulbs. If you notice drooping in the leaves, it means you're overwatering.
Make sure to keep an eye out for pests, such as thrips, snails, aphids and slugs. These can be hard to spot due to their size and Haemanthus albiflos foliage providing a perfect hiding spot. Neem oil can help get rid of them and prevent further infestations.

Hippeastrum sp. (Amaryllis) is a plant that is commonly grown in containers in colder regions, as it can be easily brought indoors when the weather turns cold and kept in a cool place until spring. It can be grown in full sun or semi-shade, but requires moderate watering and does not tolerate soggy soil. The flowers come in a variety of colors, including pink, white, blue, lavender, purple, red, yellow, and orange, and attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators.
The Amaryllis is a tender bulb that requires warm temperatures (70 to 75 F) for 9 to 10 months to promote flowering and vegetative growth, followed by 2 to 3 months of cool dry storage or cool growing conditions to promote reflowering. Amaryllis bulbs are easy to bring to bloom and are popular worldwide, coming in many beautiful varieties in shades of red, white, pink, salmon, and orange, as well as striped and multicolored varieties. Planting period for Amaryllis is from October until the end of April, with a flowering period from late December until the end of June, lasting 7-10 weeks.
When planting the Amaryllis bulb, the base and roots should be placed in lukewarm water for a few hours before planting up to its neck in potting mix, being careful not to damage the roots. Bulbs should be planted 8 weeks before the desired bloom time. After flowering, the stem of the Amaryllis should be cut back to the top of the bulb when it starts to sag, and the bulb should be stored in a cool, dark place, such as the crisper of a refrigerator for a minimum of 6 weeks before planting again.
