>I guess it is Lycoris aurea,

Dear Joe;
	Don't know where you live, but if it colder than Zone 9 or 
10, it is not L. aurea.

>One big disappointment has been Lycoris squamigera.

	This species does badly in mild zones. If you are warmer than 
7 it probably will not perform well.
	Does that put you squarely in Zone 8?

>In addition to some other odds and ends of Lycoris, and the ever present L.
>radiata, I have L. springeri.

	If Lycoris are planted planted later than August, dry and 
rootless, they can take 2 to 3 years to recover and bloom.

	Best	Jim W.
