Nope. I do know the difference. I really was asking about the pink-flowered Lycoris squamigera. I also grow Lycoris radiata and enjoy it in my plant room and a trial bit outside. I hadn't noticed the name hurricane lilies before, thanks for sharing it. > Ummm... Maybe Marguerite meant Lycoris radiata, the red one (hurricane > lilies to some.) It grows easily and blooms readily in our warmer-wintered > Western climates. > and really I don't quite think of my climate as warmer wintered. At least not this week. > > My Lycoris radiata didn't bloom well at all this year. > Neither did those of mine outdoors. Squirrels ate the flowering stalks, so the Lycoris radiata now live in a cage. (G) Marguerite growing in: Zone 7, 3700 ft altitude, under the slope of mount Cuyamaca near the Laguna mtns. of California.
