White Spider Lily
These Spidery White Blossoms Only Look Fragile!
The White Spider Lily looks delicate, but don’t let that fool you. You won’t spend your summer and fall fussing over them. Just plant them and forget them. There’s no need to deadhead them. Just let them wither. The foliage lasts through the winter, adding interest to the bleak landscape. Leave them alone and let them do their thing.
The beauty of it all
Immediately after the end-of-summer rains, the White Spider Lily ‘Lycoris albiflors’ pops up out of nowhere. There are no leaves to indicate that plant life is brewing, but mysteriously after a downpour, the naked stalks rise out of the ground. In a few days, their dazzling clusters of blooms pop out of the tops of the stalks.
Each stalk delivers up to eight circular clusters of blooms, with each recurved petal (a petal that curves back against itself) sporting a soft pink stripe down the center. The delicate clusters grace the top of the stalks for a couple of weeks, and then…poof…they’re gone just as quickly as they appeared. After the clusters wither, masses of daffodil-like leaves fill the void.
Add an elegant air to your garden
Because the White Spider Lily is deer resistant and drought resistant, it’s the perfect flower for wide-open fields. Plant in clusters of three to five and leave space between the clusters, because these beauties multiple rapidly. There’s also suitable for the garden bed, the patio garden and containers. They’re happy anywhere except complete shade.
Don’t settle for tiny, shriveled bulbs. Brighter Blooms ships only the highest-quality bulbs to ensure your satisfaction during the growing season. Just open the box when it arrives, and follow the planting instructions.
The White Spider Lily is extremely rare
Don’t wait too long to order. White Spider Lilies are not the easiest lily to find. They’re one of the most interesting lilies when they’re available, so place your order before they’re sold out.
