Jim W's comments on the influence of drought and rain on the blooming of
Lycoris reminds me of something I don't think we have discussed yet. Drought
means different things to different people, but I think we are all in
agreement that Lycoris are not plants which require a drying off period to
bloom well. 

I think it was three summers ago when we had an extremely dry summer by our
standards. When Lycoris squamigera bloomed that year, the scapes were only
about six or eight inches high. That was a first here. 

Has anyone else ever seen this?
