Yellow Lycoris Foliage

Three tufts of large table-knife-blade sized leaves have emerged where the yellow lycoris, sullen, failed to bloom this summer. They are alive, they will persist! Hooray!

A trumpet lily that failed to do anything this year has large shiny leaves emerging. That's why I like lilies and bulbs of all kinds; you never know what's going on underground while things look bare above.

  1. It's always so nice to see something you thought was a gonner return. Several things I planted in July of 2006 died off shortly after planting. Then after some good rains in June they shot back up out of the dirt. One was an english rose and the other was a dwarf lilac shrub. I was thrilled to see them!

I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
