No sign of lycoris in SE Michigan yet  I've been checking every morning to see if they are breaking through the stones.  Mine are at the front of the cactus bed where they get full rainfall.  We had a month that was quite dry when I gave them supplemental water with the cactus during growing season and then we've had a reasonable amount of rain for the past month.
