Lycoris incarnata is a rare amaryllis relative that has deep pink and white striped buds opening to showy, amaryllis-like, pretty in pink flowers. It is thought to be a naturally occurring hybrid between L. sprengeri and L. longituba. Lycoris resent disturbance and can take a little time to start blooming again after planting. They are dormant in summer when they appreciate a hot, dry rest, bloom in late summer and fall, and have strap-like foliage in late winter and spring. Mulch for winter in colder zones. Some suggest they could be hardier than zone 5 with protection. Photo: Wikipedia.
