Hi Nick;

We transplant lycoris year round, and have moved hundreds of spring-foliage lycoris over the last month.

Subject: [pbs] Transplanting spring-foliage Lycoris?

Can anyone comment on the best time to transplant Lycoris species and
hybrids that produce their foliage in the spring? With the winter-foliage
types like L. radiata, there's only one dormant period, so summer the
obvious time to transplant. However, the spring-foliage types (e.g. L.
longituba, L. squamigera) have two periods when there is no activity above
ground: late spring/early summer after the foliage fades but before
flowering, and autumn/winter after flowering but before leaves sprout.

I guess the short version of this question is: At what time of year do
Lycoris grow new roots?
