Hymenocallis occidentalis (Spider Lily) bulbous perennial;. White, unique "spider-like" blooms in summer . Rare in the trade. Native from Florida to Indiana. Needs partial shade and moist soil (Zone 5-9)
1gallon size available
The 3 bulbs came packaged very well with a large root mass with each bulb. New growth appeared after 1 week.
To soon to tell, I see leaves and know it's there growing! Can't wait for this one! I will be the envy of my garden club and send referrals!! Received a healthy plant!!
This plant is rarely offered by any nursery. The plant specimen provided was green, vigorous and healthy. This is the second plant of this offering purchased for a different trial location in my garden. The plant arrived in Colorado within four days of shipment in excellent condition. It was well and carefully packed for shipment. I would shop for even more rare plants were they available.
I learned quite by accident upon visiting this site that there was a Hymenocallis native to the Midwest and Plains area that I could purchase by mail order to trial in my Colorado garden. I was even more surprised to learn that this plant was available in a gallon size and at this low price. I was very pleased with the plant upon its arrival in size, condition and appearance.
