Lycoris x rosea 'Rose Queen' is a 2020 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of stunning selection of the cross of Lycoris radiata var. pumila with Lycoris sprengeri that we obtained un-named from China via plantsman Jim Waddick in 2000. The 21" brilliant cinnamon-colored stalks are topped, starting for us in late August with clusters of heavily ruffled, narrow-petalled, rosy pink flowers...a superb show in flower. The foliage emerges in fall and persists all winter. It's taken us 20 years to build up enough stock of this exceptional selection to finally share.
