Lycoris x rosea 'Magenta Magic' is our 2019 introduction of a fertile cross of Lycoris radiata x sprengeri from the late lycoris guru, Sam Caldwell. Sam proclaimed this to be his best magenta flowered hybrid, so we officially christen it Lycoris 'Magenta Magic'. The 18" tall stalks magically appear in mid-August (NC), topped with bright pure red flowers, whose tips age to blue-violet...absolutely stunning! The winter growing foliage emerges for us in early October. We have spent years building up stock, but our supply of bulbs is still very limited.
