Hans I think Dix or PC Nijessen sells them. I bought them in the past and they failed to grow or bloom. If you find a reliable source let me know

Mark :

I have just looked - Dix has only L.radiata + L.aurea - Nijssen has no Lycoris

Hans - Try Telos Rare Bulbs in California.  They have a good list and export.

Hans,

RV Roger, http://rvroger.co.uk/index.php?linksource=frontpage list several Lycoris, but I think they are sold out now. Anyway, they have other interesting bulbs.
