Lycoris sanguinea / Kitsunenokamisori キツネノカミソリ

Lycoris sanguinea, a bulbous perennial found in fields and mountains, emerges dark-green leaves in early spring from underground bulbs, which extend to 30-40cm in height. As summer sets in, however, they all perish. Instead, naked flower scapes emerge from the ground to 30-50cm in height, each bearing an umbel of 3-5 yellow-red flowers. The perianth segments open diagonally upward without warping. Bloom time: August-September.
