Around here, Lycoris squamigera is referred to as the "Hardy Amaryllis",
and the first part of the name at least is true. It must transplant,
because I got my start from a friend, but when I tried to move it (during
dormancy) I skewered the bulb with my digging fork, so I don't have any
techniques to suggest. I did the same thing with an Allium giganteum last
fall. Guess I better go with orthogonal coordinates or stick with iris
whose rhizomes are visible from the surface!
