Lycoris squamigera in warm climates

Nathan asked "Is anyone successfully growing and flowering Lycoris squamigera in USDA hardiness zone 9 ..."

I grew them here in coastal San Diego ... bloomed just OK 1st year after planting ... a few half-sized blooms the 2nd year ... none the 3rd.  The foliage gradually disappeared altogether by the 5th year.  I had better luck with L.radiata ... but it too, declined over the years.
