Lycoris squamigera is starting to bloom now here in zone 7 Maryland. I think I've asked this question in the past, but I'll try again: for purposes of discussion, let's go with the hypothesis that the plant we know as Lycoris squamigera is of hybrid origin. Can anyone tell us what the correct name for this plant would be according to the rules? I don't think we can use Lycoris squamigera, because it was published as rank species. Does a combination exist for plants of the parentage assumed for what we call Lycoris squamigera? Jim McKenney Montgomery County, Maryland, USA, USDA zone 7, where I've seen old plantings of this plant which produce hundreds, maybe thousands, of blooms yearly.
