Hi all, A week or so ago, my Lycoris in the irrigated bed bloomed and are now almost over. In my non-watered beds, there were only a few spotty blooms. On Friday (a week ago), Saturday, and Sunday, we had ca 3 inches (ca. 75 mm) of rain here on my place. Today, a mass of Lycoris chinensis are bursting into bloom today, in the non-irrigated bed. The water seems to play a big role in producing the blooms. Jim -- James Shields firstname.lastname@example.org P.O. Box 92 Westfield, IN 46074 U.S.A.
