bad amaryllis year

It's been a bad year for the amaryllis. I tried a new location at the south side of the house, which gets afternoon shade and is by the water spigot. Apparently not good. Bulbs were small, blooms are late.  Only one flower stem on the H. papilio, flowers only lasted a few days. 'Red Lion' (above) had a very small bulb, but still produced a flower, which also only lasted a few days. One stem coming up on one of the 'La Paz' side bulbs. Weird, that the main bulb didn't bloom (yet?). Nothing on the others.
