Refulgent Lycoris Radiata

Beams of evening sunlight seem to set Lycoris on fire.


They multiply in rich well-drained soil.

Naked stems hold aloft spider-like blooms.

Following bloom, green strap-like foliage will persist through the winter, making a great border for perennials and shrubs.

  3. Gorgeous! I keep meaning to order some but spring gets so busy with other things that I forget. Enjoying yours is the next best thing to having my own. Thanks for sharing them!

  4. Oooo - so pretty. I think I definitely need to add some of these to my garden. I could definitely use a pop of red color in my beds this time of year.

  5. Not only are they a splash of red in late summer, green leaves follow that last into late spring giving some green in a sometimes bleak winter garden, either as an edging or as punctuating clumps of green.

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