Answer: Lycoris squamigera is the Magic Lily. It grows 24" tall and the bulbs should be spaced 5" apart. Magic Lily needs a protective mulch in cold winter areas. The bulb produces strap-like leaves which are gone by the time the flowers appear. Magic lily likes a sunny location and a well-drained soil. Plant in August before flowering with the neck of the bulb just above the soil. Once the bulbs are established don't dig and replant or blooming will stop for a season.
