Hi Tony

I came across an article today in the Nordic Journal of Botany which
describes "Lycoris x hubeiensis". Should you be unaware of the article or
the taxon, here's the title of the article

A new natural allotriploid, Lycoris × hubeiensis hybr. nov.
(Amaryllidaceae), identified by morphological, karyological and molecular

Hi Tony,

Thanks for the information. The Lycoris in question is that yellow-flowered
mystery that I purchased from you as L. squamigera some years back. I'm
planning to split the clump, so I'll return a couple of bulbs to you at the
next PDN open house.

(Since you may not remember our correspondence from 2014, given the amount
of email you receive, the short version is that I bought L. squamigera from
PDN in 2013, and it bloomed out yellow/orange. You said the photo didn't
match anything else you were growing at the time and might have arrived from
Holland incognito.)
