Lycoris (Fall)

Lycoris (Spider Lilies) are grown for their showy funnel-shaped flowers with narrow, spreading, sometimes reflexed petals, borne on leafless stems from spring to early autumn depending on where you live. It can often be a difficult species to get into flower (sometimes taking up to 3 years) because it requires a hot dry resting period during summer followed by a soaking rain or slow irrigation to promote flowering, but they will develop into large clusters if left in the same location for a number of seasons.  All varieties are deer resistant.  In areas with hot summers, grow them in a sunny border or rock garden.

Sprengeri Lycoris (also called 'Electric Blue Lycoris,' ) have large pink, trumpet-shaped flowers with slightly reflexed petals and blue streaking at their tips.   The color can vary from pink tipped with blue to a deeper pink to more blue, changing as they mature.  

Like the Squamigera Lycoris, the foliage will disappear in July, with flowers appearing in late summer to early fall on naked stems.  Plant in full sun in organically rich soil that dries out in summer for best results.  Be sure to mulch in fall.  Please noteit is common for Lycoris to take a year or more after transplanting before blooming.

The Squamigera Lycoris (also called 'Naked Ladies,' ‘Magic Lily’ or ‘Resurrection Lily’), with large, clear pink, trumpet shaped blooms, are sweetly fragrant additions to your landscape. You may have forgotten all about them when suddenly, almost overnight, the blooms open atop thick, leafless stems! Unlike the spider lilies, it's a bit hardier and can take the cold better if you are from zones 5 or 6, but be sure to provide some mulch in the fall for protection.  Please noteit is common for Lycoris to take a year or more after transplanting before blooming.
