This hybrid is native to Japan and identified by Koidzumi in 1924 and is probably a natural hybrid between Lycoris radiata and Lycoris aurea. It is a beautiful creamy white form of Lycoris and easy to grow in the southern USA. It is seed sterile but steadily reproduces by offsets.

Neutral smiln32 On Jan 8, 2005, smiln32 from Oklahoma City, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

Widely cultivated in China and Japan. Foliage appears in autumn after the flowers (on single stalks). Needs high summer temperatures. Looks like a white version of L. radiata.
