Planting depth for Lycoris

Bill , Tony et al,

	I grow Lycoris in a very different climate from each of you ( I think you are both fairly close to each other).

	All the Lycoris that Tony mentioned below bloomed better than average this year and I relate that 99% to rainfall -  quantity, frequency and incidence. All were undivided older clumps. 

	No experience or comments about Fall Foliage species, but think they benefit from growing in shade, too. Of course I cannot grow most broad leaf evergreens of any sort due to winter burn and drought. At extremely cold temps plants growing in dry conditions cannot move water to foliage and they perish.

	Best		Jim
