Lycoris squamigera, which I think of as the flagship of the local
oporanthous flora, is blooming now in the greater Washington, D.C. area. Not
only are they blooming in my garden, but several friends in nearby northern
Virginia have reported bloom. 

As is usual, plants growing in the shade are blooming before plants growing
in sunny spots.
