Very pale yellow, almost white.  This is new to us, but some did bloom for us this fall which confirmed their true identity.  They are very frilly but much smaller than Lycoris Aurea.  The foliage seems to be mid-way between Radiata and Aurea.  Cold hardiness is untested but I expect it is less frost resistant than radiata.  From China, but perhaps sourced from Burma/Myanmar originally.

Bulbs are small at about half an inch across but more than 1 inch tall.  We sell the largest bulbs available, subject to some variation 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 blooming in late summer.

Plant in partial to full shade, in well drained humus soil.  Plant, 1-2 inches deeper than the top of the bulb as soon as possible so roots can start getting established. The bulbs will pull themselves down to their ideal dept. DO NOT plant more than 3 inches deeper than the top of the bulb as the bulb will expend all it's energy making another bulb on top of the existing bulb. Water thoroughly when first planted then soak twice a month if you don't have regular rain fall.
