It's taken us fifteen years to build up enough stock of Lycoris x caldwellii 'Sky Over Sky' to have enough to share. This Chinese hybrid of Lycoris chinensis x Lycoris longituba is a superb garden performer with excellent winter hardiness. The sturdy, upright, 2' tall flowering stalks emerge in early September (NC) with large, light butter-yellow flowers that contrast nicely with the fleshy pink buds. The foliage on Lycoris x caldwellii doesn't emerge until late February for us, and emerges even later in colder climates...preventing it from getting damaged in winter.
