Old books mention Lycoris aurea thriving in St. Augustine, Florida. In fact, after Googling a bit, I learned that this species in now sometimes called the St. Augustine lily. 

In my experience, Lycoris aurea mercatorum is more apt to be L. traubii, but I've never been comfortable with the purported distinction between these.
