One sale because these have multiplied very well for us!

Blushing Lady is either a hybrid between L. radiata x albiflora or simply a wild collected L. elsiae.  Usually anything with this type of background (combined Radiata and Aurea genes) is hopelessly sterile, but for us Blushing Lady sets occasional seeds.  The flower starts a dark, salmony pink and gets lighter with age.  The petals develop a dark pink stripe with pale pink edging. It is a fall foliage type and should have similar cold hardiness to Lycoris Radiata (zones 6-10). 

These bulbs are blooming size or close to it at about 1" across.  Size will vary somewhat depending on what we dig up.  Although we take care to send the freshest bulbs possible, it is common for Lycoris to sulk for a year or so after transplanting before gracing us with their summer blooms. This gives all the more reason to get them planted now, rather than put it off for another year.  Although tollerant of lengthy dry periods, Lycoris do best with regular moisture, even during summer dormancy. As with all Lycoris, I recommend that you plant shallowly, with the top of the bulb close to the surface.
