Dear Mark;
	Lycoris grow in China in damp shady spots or the edges of woodlands.
	In cultivation they seem to do best where they get warm 
summers, not necessarily for a dry baking, just warm to ripen bulbs 
and produce produce flower stems. You may just not have the heat 
needed to induce blooming. Maybe you could try them in your warmest 
spot. They do tolerate a lot of sun.
