Lycoris x sprengensis 'Creamsickle' is 2019 Plant Delights/Juniper Level Botanic Garden introduction of a new lighter pink counterpart to the popular Lycoris x squamigera. The spring-foliaged Lycoris x sprengensis 'Creamsickle' is a Phil Adams cross of Lycoris chinensis 'Sperryi' x Lycoris sprengeri 'Hayward', that produces 2' tall green stalks, starting for us in mid-August, each topped with creamy orange, burgundy striped buds. The buds open to 7-9 creamy flowers, striped dark yellow near the throat. Lycoris x sprengensis 'Creamsickle' has the most flowers per stalk of any lycoris we grow.
