Lycoris fraud. Now, lycoris praise

 But, for me this year, Lycoris sprengeri has been wonderful. The clump has matured to the point where, surely, three dozen scapes are open, and the blue on the petals is especially striking. Who needs fake hybrids?

 Dear PBS Friends,

    I recently got a note from a PBS member and Lycoris fan asking about  “New colors’ in Lycoris as advertised on eBay. I went and looked and found blatant fraudulent  LIES. Not only did these include ‘impossible  Lycoris colors” such as pure black, Royal Blue, Bright orange double flowers and more, some of the flowers pictured were not even Lycoris, but various Rain Lilies, Day Lilies etc. Many of these were advertised cheaply from sellers in China.  PLEASE BEWARE. 

    There is a limited pallette of colors for Lycoris and most are seen on the PBS wiki.… <…>

    Please buy from reliable growers and hybridizers such as Edens Blooms, Plant Delights and others.

        And enjoy Lycoris season as it goes into the next pahase of bloom season.         Best        Jim W.
