Fast Lycoris report

In my "Dust Bowl" garden, just one L. squamigera popped out. Normally I get quite a few of them, but not until the end of August to the beginning of September. This year has been unbelievably hot and dry (no appreciable rain for three months) and I think that may have been a contributing factor.

My L. squamigera put up only two scapes (instead of the fifty? I was expecting) L. radiata bloomed very early, the petals looked sunburned by the second day, and now they’re gone. L. sprengeri put up one scape and lasted less than a week. I am bummed out!
