(aka: Lycoris PA/MS72) Lycoris x rosea 'Tomato Soup' is a 2019 Plant Delights/Juniper Level Botanic Garden introduction of a Phil Adams cross of Lycoris x rosea back to Lycoris radiata var. pumila. The result is an incredible surprise lily that sports 20" tall cinnamon/green stalks, starting for us in mid-August, each topped first with up to 7-8 brilliant scarlet buds that open to very frilly, tomato soup colored, narrow-petalled, stunning red flowers. As the flowers age, they develop the lavender blue tips from the Lycoris sprengeri parent...a highlight of the summer garden. The foliage emerges for us in early October and persists all winter.
