(aka: Lycoris 'Off-White' #252) Lycoris 'Stargazer' is a 2016 Plant Delights Nursery introduction of a previously un-released hybrid from the late Sam Caldwell, who originally got it from Dr. Hirao in Japan. Lycoris 'Stargazer' produces a vigorous clump of 28" tall, dark purple stems, topped in early August with terminal clusters of 6-9, long-tubed, red-striped buds that open to creamy white flowers with exterior petal striping. Lycoris 'Stargazer' is a hybrid of Lycoris sprengeri and Lycoris longituba, whose foliage emerges in late January/early February in NC. Lycoris 'Stargazer' is a great companion to the slightly taller Lycoris x squamigera.
