Amaryllis belladonna and lycoris squamigera

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 20:19:28 PDT
A friend in Indiana sent me Lycoris squamigera when I lived in Portland Or. After nine years the bulbs never flowered, but the Amaryllis always flowered. 

If I am remembering correctly, Lycoris squamigera foliage emerges in the spring.

Brookings Or-- where Lycoris radiata refuses to flower also.
