I am attempting to grow Lycoris in my zone 5 Massachusetts garden, for the
first time this year. Last year I was gifted with 50 bulbs which I planted
along the greenhouse where there is a raised bed. I felt that this might be
a more protected area from frosts. After last winter's snow ( 5 feet by mid
January, and higher where they were planted because it slid off of the
greenhouse roof), I don't know how well they survived.

No sign of new growth yet,but I repotted Cyclamen species yesterday and they
are still all dormant ( sans one) and last year they were all budded by this
