Sorry for evoking the bulb lust.  I grow it just at the drip line   of 
some   25 year old fagus sylvatica ( European Beech) .  The soil is 
ordinary garden soil which I have augmented with some grit and a couple 
of handfuls of alfalfa pellets.  I must admit that the trees are 
reaching out over the bulbs so at some point it may develop into a 
problem.  They share the area with a number of lycoris and a 
cardiocrinum giganteum that I have nurturing along for four years.  Each 
year the number of leaves on the cardiocrinum get bigger and taller.  At 
some point I may get a flower and then lose the bulb.  I am located two 
miles west of the George Washington Bridge.

The lily came from the SLPG  and has flowered two years since I received 
it.  The flowers have a very thick and waxy texture.
