Thank you, Tony, for that very informative reply. Here is a photo of my
plant, assuming I manage to successfully attach a photo to the list.  I
think it looks a lot like the L. x Elsiae on the PDN website.

I'm looking forward to a visiting the open house tomorrow.  Hope to see
some interesting Lycoris!
