Live in Daytona and just received a blooming amaryllis. My friend says they go outside well, but all I see on the Internet is how to plant it from a bulb. This has 4 blooms on it already. Is it OK outside in the winter?

They will survive year round outside in zones 7 or higher, so if you are in zone 7 or higher, yes, it will grow and bloom every year if you leave it in the ground. If you are not in zone 7, I would recommend mulching it in the winter, just in case you get a cold winter. Plant them as you would amaryllis bulbs; however, the blooms may die back but should rebloom the following season.
