Lycoris radiata is a rare amaryllis relative that has showy, spider-like, red flowers and strap like foliage with a pale central stripe that emerges after the flowers fade. It flowers in late summer or autumn. The bulbs are extremely poisonous and have been used to keep rats out of rice paddies. In Japanese and Buddhist traditions they are associated with death so are not otherwise exchanged. Lycoris resent disturbance and can take a little time to start blooming again after planting. They are dormant in summer, bloom in late summer and fall, and have strap-like foliage in fall, winter, and/or spring. Photo: Wikipedia.
