Familiar to many northern gardeners, this species closely resembles Amaryllis belladonna with trumpet-like blooms of rose-pink, tinged amethyst- blue. The strap-like leaves appear early in the spring, mature and die back by mid-June. In late summer the flower stems rise to a height of 18-24 inches and bear their lovely trumpets. Grows easily in most garden soils, forming an impressive grouping over time.

    I am very well satisfied with the Lycoris Squamigera bulb I received. Growing up in the South, I was very accustomed to seeing "Naked Ladies" (that's how I always knew them) appear like magic each Fall. I was very disappointed to learn that they do not grow where I now live (NW Wisconsin, HZ 4). HAH! While other more delicate examples of Lycoris are definitely not for the North, Squamigera can handle the cold when treated properly. I learned long ago that they do fine if two rules are followed. 1) Dig the hole about 2" deeper than normal. 2) Fill those 2" with nothing but perlite. Dry, Dry, Dry is a must in the far north. (Sandy soil IS NOT a substitute for perlite. At the beach, squeeze a handful of wet sand. It stays together. In the same fashion, sand will smother a bulb when it gets wet. PERLITE!) Anyway, I have three small stands of Naked Ladies that have returned for years, with the oldest being over 12 years now. As to the bulb I purchased from M&Z, the price was what I expected. However, I would have liked to have seen a bit larger bulb. It did not bloom this Fall and I will attribute that to the size of the bulb. I think it will need a year to settle in. Other, larger bulbs, have bloomed for me the first year. Still, the bulb I received looked good and I am quite certin I will enjoy blooms next Fall.
