The one I have is Amarcrinum Howardii.  It has however only flowered once for me (in late summer if I remember well) probably because I have been neglecting the plant just too much.  I should take some more care of the plant this and the next years.
Francois, By taking care of it ... make sure that it gets heat in summer, while I keep reading about full sun positions and southern aspects in northern hemisphere literature, my personal experience is that Amaryllis will flower in summer shade, as long as they get sun while in the growth phase. Many of these hybrids like a dry rest, so if A. Howardii does go dormant during late summer try to withhold water, then in very late summer, early autumn hit it with a deep soak. Good luck!

hi there New to group and thank you Anita for the introduction to the site and group!

I also have a number of "Amaryllis' plants and so called hybrids,
i hvae also been told that amaryllis belladonna is one of the most promiscuous bulb plants around mating with almost any thing that comes alon, and when it self pollinates the gene polle is so diverse that there could be so many combinations of feathers, ie: flower stem, peduncle length, tepal size and with, color on filaments ect
with all of mine i have 3 distinct white varieties

White Amaryllis Belladonna
Over the last 12 months I have come across 2 distinct white “Amaryllis” which im sure are not.

1: (Croydon Hall)
   Tall about 60 cm, flower is large including peduncle <7” and has a messy whorl and the middle grower sidewards also.
   FLOWER info:   tepals 3.5” to where it is fused with the filament then there is another ¾” to receptacle ends, width 1”
   Fragrance: Fungent
570827-0

2: (Quarry Rd)
   Medium height about 40cm, flower including peduncle <3.5”.  Has a 3/4 whorl and the middle grower standing upright. Apricot throat is about ¼ the length of the tepals and dose nor show on the out side
   FLOWER info:   tepals 3” to where it is fused with the filament then there is another ½” to receptacle ends, width 3/4”
   Fragrance: Fungent
570829-1

3: (Dorset Rd)
   Small height about 30cm, flower including peduncle <4”.  But smaller then No:2 ingeneral appearance.  Has a distinct whorl with middle flower standing upright. Apricot throat is about 1/3 the length of the tepals and also shows on the outside of the bloom
   FLOWER info:   tepals 3” to where it is fused with the filament then there is another 3/4” to receptacle ends, width 3/4”
   Fragrance: mild
570831-2

4: (Mrs L)
   This is a self clone from a pot which has been in the garden for some 50 years and has only just become present to us , I have no real information at this point until it blooms again and I can isolate it, I have collected seed from it and made sure I pollinated it with only its own pollen
