Planting depth for Lycoris

Keep the nose just below soil level and figure out a way to make the 
hole so that the base it is set on is not too soft, else it will 
"sink" deeper. Active mole areas can also cause Lycoris to "plummet" 
to their eventual demise. After an initial planting, I recommend a 
couple inches of coarse mulch. It should not matter the type of 
Lycoris, but the nose just below is based on a mature sized bulb. A 
younger bulb should maybe go a little deeper, even though this may 
seem counter intuitive.
