Jim W - I had a clump of L. chienensis that was increasing nicely but this year has failed to bloom and as I now recall spring, there was less foliage than there should have been. I hate that I've lost it, I enjoyed those golden blooms greatly! At one point in this thread, you wrote that Lycoris suffered from few pests or diseases. Would you please expand a bit on that? Thanks! Linda W. ________________________________________________________________________ Try Juno Platinum for Free! Then, only $9.95/month! Unlimited Internet Access with 1GB of Email Storage.
