Shawn and all, 

	As a second hand report, I don’t give it a lot of credence. Seems like a lot of ‘second handers’ have serious difficulty telling L. squamigera from Amaryllis belladonna. I know a number of CA gardeners who swear that they grow Lycoris squamigera, but photos are usually easy enough to verify the correct genus. 

	Serious doubting, not you, just the report,		 Jim W.
