I have not seen Z. atamasco hybrids- although I would love to see more

however here in SW Georgia I have in the past seen sporadic fall blooms some
years among the natives.  Not necessarily in the larger stands of Z.
atamasco, more a happy surprise one or two on the side of a road where least
expected. This year has been so painfully dry that I would be shocked to see
any- blooms have been low on even my most dependable summer bulbs.

rain in sight with temps in the high 90's tomorrow
