Lycoris chinensis is a rich buttery yellow flower in the spider-form similar to L. radiata. It blooms at mid-season, between squamigera and caldwellii. Flower petals are creamy white at the edges and have a yellow stripe down the middle - sort of looks like a seven-petaled star. Lovely form and color.
