I searched immediately with how they look and the bright red curly petals seem so beautiful. I haven't seen anything like it here in the country. It was reported to have originated from China and Japan, and I realized it is a bit invasive in foreign lands, and they are seen growing abundantly in abandoned lands. I hope this is the first Licoris radiata here and i will try not to allow it invade our lands. The first bloom already emerged, with four flowers per scape. Despite the small flower size, they are lovely.
The petals curl at the tip, but the petal blades also look like ruffles.
The very long wiskers, which are actually the filament, are wonderful
Only three flowers are already open in this picture. I still don't know how long is the bloom life.
I searched for any succeeding scape, but nothing is conspicuous just yet. I hope more spikes will be produced this season, which coincide with the rainy months. Those long thin leaves are beautiful on their own, with the whitish hues at the center of the leaves along the midrib area.
I have a few foreigner plants in my custody, but this one has the brightest and loudest color, so far!
