(aka: Lycoris x houdyshelii 'Golden Panda') Lycoris x straminea 'Golden Panda' is a 2013 Plant Delights/Juniper Level Botanic Garden introduction of the naturally occurring Chinese hybrid of Lycoris chinensis x Lycoris radiata. It's taken us five years to rebuild stock for a second offering. Lycoris 'Golden Panda' emerges sans foliage in late August with 22" tall green stalks, each ending with clusters of large frilly flowers composed of narrow striped petals with a dark yellow center surrounded by a lighter yellow border. Like other sex organs, the stigma tips take on a dark pink tinge as they age. The foliage follows the flowers in September and remains green until spring. Some sunlight when the foliage is green is essential for good growth and flowering.
