Pink Lycoris Squamigera | Fragrant Surprise Lily | Cold Hardy Lycoris
Commonly known as "surprise lilies", lycoris flower stalks spring out of the ground practically overnight, delivering a pleasant surprise in the late summer garden. These clear pink, trumpet shaped blooms are sweetly fragrant additions to the landscape at a point in the season when freshness is especially welcome. Excellent in beds with shorter perennials or with groundcover plants. Strap like leaves appear after the blooms to gather sunlight and nutrients for next year's show. These are long-lived plants that deliver brilliance and scent for generations. This is the most cold hardy of the lycoris, and the only one with fragrance!
Water lightly until top growth emerges, then moderately during active growth cycle.
