Red In The Garden – Spider Lily Season

Standing against a backdrop of Salvia greggii ‘Furman’s Red’ (Autumn Sage), lovely Lycoris radiata is in full bloom this week. I marveled at these flowers as a child when year after year they popped up at my grandmother’s house.

      John, I think spider lilies are supposed to spread but mine have been in ground since 2014 and haven’t travelled. They are having an exceptional year in flowering though.

    Oh yes, they are beautiful! I am thrilled when the Lycoris squamigera is blooming in my garden. L. radiata is hardy to zone 5b, so I’m close. With climate change, maybe I can find a warm spot near the house for it. Love it!

      I can understand. Our winters are milder than yours. If I had to dig things up in fall I wouldn’t have anything. These have been in ground since 2014. Seems an especially good year for them.
