Dear Fred;
	This is as good a time as any to transplant Lycoris. Be 
careful and try to not disturb the roots.
	They can be transplanted almost any time while they are 
dormant, depending on species, from June 1 to end of August.

	The true species has become uncommon in commerce, but is 
regularly offered by Plant Delights and Fairweather Gardens 
nurseries. Both can be googled and it may be best to inquire if they 
are not listed this year.

	It should do just fine in the Boston area.		Jim W.

ps Incidentally bulbs purchased dried out in Oct November have been 
severely stressed and there are survival problems. If they survive 
they may take 3 or more years to recover and bloom.
	They prefer a moist shaded spot.
