Hi Gang, I guess it is Lycoris aurea, but I can't remember when I planted it, or where I got it. I just noticed the scape today, about 24 inches tall, peeking up between some azaleas. I'm glad I planted and will take better note of it this next year. I do remember trading some bulbs with friends, and planting them here and there in the flower and shrub beds. One big disappointment has been Lycoris squamigera. The plants grow well enough, but in 4 years about 15-20 bulbs have put out only 1 or 2 bloom stalks. I think winter is just too warm here; winter lows have been about 23-25 F, and then only once or twice a winter. In addition to some other odds and ends of Lycoris, and the ever present L. radiata, I have L. springeri. It sat for a couple of years, and then bloomed this past year; maybe it will repeat soon. Who knows, this may be the fall the L. squamigera put out a show. Cordially, Conroe Joe No rain for a while, 95 F for, still warm evenings Formosa lily blooming again along with some Crinum, including C. asiaticum and a xdigweedii-type.
