The Lycoris radiata have been wandering

They do move about by seed. I doubt this clump was planted here, but who's going to weed them out?!. They've dispersed themselves all through the collection and flower so late that they almost  run into fall foliage. It's a brutally harsh color, but I love it.

I can't even get my bulbs to give me more than a couple of inches of growth! Judging by this post I should start to treat them with neglect!

FI think they're one of those plants that starts slow but after some amount of time begin to flower, then spread. Ours have been there for years and years. I planted one bulb in my garden and it took 3? years to flower. Now it's grown into a clump.
