Jim in Kansas City:

Have your Lycoris started to bloom yet?

The Chicago region has been inundated with rain/storms this summer with a
lot of heat and humidity.  I am anxiously (impatiently) watching for the
first Lycoris spikes.  Discussions in previous years had suggested the
sometime sporadic flower spike production was linked to low soil moisture -
which is certainly not an issue this year.

Many thanks,
