What's Blooming

In my dormant, but late summer blooming, section of potted bulbs, I 
have three scapes coming up. All three are for the first time. They are 
Lycoris squamigera, L. incarnata, and one of the bulbs of Amaryllis 
belladonna hybrids from Les Hannibal's garden that were offered way 
back when. These are all in larger pots (3 gal. ones).

The reason I even have L. squamigera (which isn't supposed to flower in 
my area) was that it was offered at one of the local nurseries and 
every year it grows a nice set of healthy leaves which have increased 
over time. I can't just kill it just because I later learned it's not 
supposed to bloom in my area, can I?
