A friend sent me some Lycoris pictures this morning, and they made me realize that I don't know Lycoris as well as I might. I Googled images to try to match them up, and ran across a very interesting Lycoris site. Those of you who are old hands at Lycoris probably already know this one, but anyone starting fresh with the genus might want to take a look at: http://www5e.biglobe.ne.jp/~lycoris/ I found this Japanese site fascinating. One curiosity: Lycoris caldwellii is misspelled L. cardwellii. I've read that Japanese does not distinguish between r and l, and this is apparently an example of that!
