Lycoris rise again.

Dear Friends,
	This seems a bit early for the season to begin here in Kansas 
City, but we have had prime climate for Lycoris -not for mere 
humans*. We've had weeks of heat - most days over 90 F, then a few 
days ago we had over 2 inch of rain.

	Yesterday I saw a single stem of a Lycoris chinensis x L. 
longituba hybrid up about 1 foot.  I checked around and saw no 
others, but L. sanguinea is usually the first to actually bloom here 
and no growth visible.

	I notice that Jay Yourch showed a pic of an opening Lycoris 
flower in his GA garden…

	Stay tuned for even more Lycoris news.	Let the flowering 
begin!		Jim W.

* Yesterday the air temp was 96 F and the humidity was also 96%. Fine 
for a sauna followed by a dip in a cool Norwegian pool, but not for 
shopping at the mall or anywhere outdoors.
