Mike,

	You are pshing their limits in the Finger lakes, but in a protected spot and mulched they might  do OK. They do not need full sun, but under deciduous trees they get winter sun on foliage that is enough.

	They generally do not flower well in pots, but can suceed in large tubs in a cool GH.  Best of luck.		Jim W.

Paul & Jim,

Thank you for your responses. I'm going to treat the bulbs as if they are
Lycoris radiata until I can confirm the ID with some blooms (hopefully).

I don't think I can safely grow them outside. Our average winter
temperature may put us in Zone 6a, but we usually have a week or more of
sub- or near-zero temperatures every month over the winter. Especially when
the Polar Vortex starts roaming.

Paul, the Nerine site looks interesting. I will be visiting it often, I'm
sure.

Mike
Zone 6A, Finger Lakes area, where we went from near-zero on Friday to a
record-breaking 63 degrees yesterday.
