I moved house and garden this past Spring and dug up all my Lycoris in March. It was kind of sad because I thought it would interrupt the bloom cycle. All the bulbs got temporarily planted in a large tub. Yesterday as I was doing my daily garden walkabout I was delighted to see they are actually beginning to come up right on schedule with blooms!

Amazing. Hurray! Hurray! I tip my hat to you.

A few years ago I moved and moved up my gardens and most things survived. I think our plants know we love them. It gives you a good feeling to see your plants have survived a move.

I knew they would survive .. I was thinking it would be another growing season until they bloomed again ... especially since the bulbs spent 2 weeks sitting in a laundry basket. Plants are amazing!

I got a surprise too; two yellow lycoris are blooming!!! Hurray! They were marked as daffs... I wondered why they were sending up stalks Confused - way too early for them.
Didn't even remember when I got these either.

Nice! I love surprises ... had one of my own .. one lone Lycoris bloomed in a tub full of Leucojum. Must have gotten the bulbs mixed up when I planted them.

Mine are in full bloom now. I guess I'll keep them in the bathtub and plant them in the ground in March rather than December.

Bulbs are so awesome, the easiest plants, IMVHO. You never wonder when you're digging them up if you're doing it right, and shaking off all of the dirt is no problem, easy to gather a BUNCH & replant leisurely, as time allows.

These are bulbs that were moved earlier this year, L. radiata.

Every time I think I've gotten those all out of the grass, more bloom the next year. Will be digging up buckets of these from the empty lot next door again this weekend.

Lucky you! Wish I had an empty lot with lycoris next door.

They are everywhere in the grass in this area, I first found them in my own yard. Aside from seeing them blooming amid the grass, when a drought made the grass turn brown one year, there were clumps of green striped "grass." I dug some up and saw the bulbs it had, and the light went on, as they say, I figured out what they were and that the striped grass & bulbs belonged to the red flowers I'd seen. (I'm a transplant to the south from OH.) It has to be from seeds. It's not possible that anyone purposely put them in all of the places I've seen them.

It's common for them to be purposely put in a row in the grass, near the street or along a property line. Those displays are cool too, always suspected they were done by folks who find them in the yard and don't want to make a "flower bed" but do want to have a cool display of them when they bloom Just mow with the grass until it's bloom time. Then don't mow that strip/patch for 2-3 weeks.

I'm hoping mine will continue to be fruitful and multiply. The number has tripled since I first got them about 2 year ago.

I had to take a pic from really far away to get most of these flowers in 1 pic.
