I'm in zone 7, just north of Washington, D.C. -as my prior postings have indicated. And thanks for pointing out that there are hardy yellow Lycoris for cold areas. Actually, I knew about L. chinensis, and I've grown and flowered the "garden center yellow" Lycoris. It's not hardy here. This I assume is L. traubii, but I've never been sure. How are L. aurea and L. traubii different? I recall an article written by Caldwell many years ago in which he mentioned a yellow flowered Chinese Lycoris he saw in a Tennessee garden. Is this the plant which came to be known as L. caldwellii? Can you suggest sources for any of these?
