Lycoris squamigera

Lycoris squamigera
Plump and curvaceous new growth in late March, full of promise

Common name resurrection lily
Family amaryllidaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-9)
Flowers pink
Size 18-24"
Light sun-part shade

Late-summer blooming bulb, producing fragrant pink lily-like flowers on leafless stems after the leaves die back in late spring or early summer. The dying foliage can be messy, so best to plant these where it will be hidden by surrounding plants that bulk up during this time. The large bulbs multiply, and can be divided every several years.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: back fence border
