My pot of A. belladonna has received some rain and is putting up foliage, not blooms. :-( Although kep perfectly dry, it never lost all the foliage; 2 or 3 very short green leaves remained on each bulb, regardless of size. I am continuing to water regularly if nature doesn't provide. The bulbs that had been sitting dry, out of soil (and lost all roots and foliage) got a bit of rain and began to produce roots. I put them in the ground and am waiting to see what they do next. The Lycoris radiata in the yard haven't yet bloomed, but I saw some arround town blooming yesterday. Robert. Z 7b.
