I grow lots Amaryllis belladonna and they bloomed several weeks earlier 
than this did. They're also much larger and have a strong, sweet, 
almost candy-like scent, and they have many blooms per scape and much 
taller scape stalks. They do so well here that they will naturalize 
without any additional watering or care. I got this bulb from Van 
Bourgondien a few years ago. Are you saying that those were not 
Lycoris? This is not like any Amaryllis that I've ever seen either. I 
wonder what it could be.
