Lycoris sprengeri 'Rhythm and Blues' is 2019 Plant Delights/Juniper Level Botanic Garden introduction of a Phil Adams cross of typical Lycoris sprengeri and the original type specimen of Lycoris haywardii, which we now know to be Lycoris sprengeri 'Hayward'. The result is a lovely plant that sends up 20" tall cinnamon-colored stalks in mid-August (NC). The stalks are topped with 5-6, medium pink flowers, whose petals are slightly narrower than typical Lycoris sprengeri, and tipped with a soft blue blush.
