I see a lot of interest from our eastern North American members in 
Lycoris, but I have never been able to keep it here in the Cascade 
foothills, for which I blame cool summer nights. However, yesterday I 
went to a party at a great garden, that of Norm Kalbfleisch and Neil 
Matteuci, that is less than a mile from my new house, and they had 
huge clumps of Crinum in flower. Am I correct in thinking that if you 
can grow Crinum well, you have a chance with Lycoris? If there is a 
similarity in their requirements, I might try Lycoris again -- though 
I don't think I want to use the space for Crinum.
