Lycoris x rosea 'Rose Parade' is a 2019 introduction of a special selection of a hybrid of Lycoris radiata x Lycoris sprengeri that we acquired in 1999 from China's Dr. Lin, via plantsman Jim Waddick. Since the bulbs were mixed up in shipment, we are uncertain of the true name, so we use the name Lycoris 'Rose Parade'. For us, Lycoris 'Rose Parade' produces masses of very frilly, narrow-petalled rosy-pink flowers atop 17" tall stalks, starting for us in mid-July. In our climate, the winter-growing foliage emerges in early October.
