I also have a few Sternbergia lutea blooming here in Wake County, central 
North Carolina, USA (USDA Zone 7b).  This is just a tease so far, most have 
not emerged yet, but Rhodophiala bifida and Lycoris radiata are at peak 
bloom now.

A few of the orangey-red Lycoris radiata are in a position to do a fantastic 
job of clashing with the magenta-pink of the Anemone 'September Charm' which 
hitchhiked into this bed on another plant and is now taking over.  Probably 
would be easiest to move these few Lycoris to another location.  Then again, 
the offending combination does not last long and I may just forget about it 
until this time next year.
