Imagine my surprise to find this exotic flower growing on the banks of the Pascagoula River.
Hymenocallis liriosome is a native Mississippi flower found growing in boggy areas with huge, tantalizing-fragrant white flowers that are nearly 7 inches wide. While these are found in wet areas, they will do fine in well-prepared, upland soils. There are probably 40 Spider Lily species around the world with many found in the West Indies and South America.
When planting Spider Lilies choose a site in full to part sun. They can tolerate wet feet areas, but prefer a bed prepared by incorporating 3 to 4 inches of organic matter. Plant them after the last frost. Set the bulbs with the tips 1 inch below the soil surface, and space plants from 12 to 24 inches apart.
Keep Spider Lilies well watered, especially during the bloom period. Remove the brown foliage in late summer.
