Dear all -
	As an admitted Lycori-phile, I am always glad to announce the 
start of the season. My first species . L. sanguinea kiusiana has 
already come and gone with a very short bloom season in our extended 
heat and drought.  This is one of the smaller species and each stem 
rarely has more than 4 blooms per stem, but the pale orange- 
tangerine flower color is a treat.

	Regardless of speculation, there did not seem to be any 
flowering 'cue' provided by a major change in temperature or 
rainfall. They just bloomed.

	Next...			Jim W.
