Lycoris incarnata is one of the "Surprise Lilies" - in the USA it's referred to as the Peppermint Surprise Lily!
It was a surprise to see a couple of stems pop up last weekend (pics 1 & 2).
Today I found that a few more stems had come up but the original two are already fading,
cheers

Fermi,

I'm surprised that your Lycoris incarnata is blooming in early Summer.  Mine blooms in early Autumn.

I am in USDA zone 8b where temperatures almost never fall below 15F -9.4C.  Rainfall 50" 110 cm + but none  June-September.  We seldom get snow; but when it comes we get 30" overnight. Soil is sandy loam with a lot of humus.

Hi Marc,
I think the recent deluge has confused them!

The typical form of Amaryllis belladonna has been flowering in our area for the past week or so.
Ours are mostly hybrids and the first ones usually are the right cerise ones, however this year another type (I think seedlings from a white "Multiflora"),
