Hello all. Hymenocallis occidentalis blooming for me. Maiden bloom on two seedlings purchased as seedlings about 5 years ago. 4 flowes on one, 5 on the other. Bases of the stems more than 1 inch in greatest cross-sectional dimension--marquise-shaped which I've not seen in any description, and one stem is 17" tall to the base of the inflorescence. A very respectable flower--about 6" across My Haemanthus coccineus (katharinae?) finished blooming about 3 weeks ago. I'm also announcing what may be a fool's claim. Seed pods on Lycoris squamigera and on both sanguinea and aurea v. surgens by squamigera. I've not seen the ovaries so large before and holding their color while others have declined. Of course they could be balloons, and/or inviable. These were the product of mixed pollen, a 2, 4-D assist and DMSO. So singalong with me? . Has anyone else had large pods on squamigera and subsequent failure? Jim Waddick?
