Lycoris General Information

Flowers bloom in late fall on naked stems that last forever in the garden and in the vase. The basal narrow strap-like foliage grow after blooming and usually lasts through spring when it dies back for a resting period before the next fall flowers appear.

Lycoris Plant Care

Space 8" apart. Plant 4-6" deep with pointed top facing up. Bulbs do not like being disturbed and may take a season before they bloom in their new home.
