Yes...we grow them all side by side. Currently lycoris X squamigera is in flower alongside flowering Lycoris radiata and X haywardii.

        Do you grow and bloom both squamigera and other ‘spring growers along side the milder winter growing species?

        You might be in that ‘Goldilocks Zone’ for Lycoris.             Best            Jim W.
