Diana Chapman shared an interesting anecdote a number of years ago about 
a surprise Lycoris flowering in California. You can read it here:…

It was speculation on her part that a drop in temperature had induced 
flowering. California often has sunny fall months and doesn't get cold 
sometimes until November. You might search the archives as I think this 
has been discussed a number of times before.
