Developing over time into bulb clusters with oodles of tall stalks topped with curly pink blooms, these lycoris are remarkably tough. Plant where they'll get sun and good drainage. They'll take care of the rest . . . for years to come. This lycoris is an heirloom, first grown in the late 1880s. Note to cold region gardeners: pink squamigera is the most winter hardy of any lycoris available today.
Lycoris plants are also known as magic, surprise, hurricane and resurrection lilies as they often sprout and flower strongly after heavy late summer rains or hurricanes . . . appearing as if by magic.
