My red spider lilly has produced round black seeds about the size of a BB from the blossom recently. How and when is the best time to plant the seeds? Please let me hear from you.

According to what I have read, the sooner they are planted, the better because the germination rate decreases when they are not fresh. Here is some information on the process: http://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswi ... hp/Lycoris
. The information on growing them from seed is in the first paragraph. It takes up to 5 years to get blooms from plants grown from seed so people typically propagate them by dividing the bulbs when they are dormant in the summer.
