Spider Lily | Lycoris Radiata

__________________________________________________________________________

The red spider lily appears after a good rain in the fall. I have placed hundreds of  these bulbs in four large pots placed along a crescent shaped bed that rounds out a corner of our lot. I also included two cannas planted toward the back of the pots.

The bulbs are frost tender (7b-8a) so I am happy they have survived two years in the pots. 





The Hummingbird plants, just left of this bed are set to rebloom. There will be a vivid show of red flowers this fall. The Turk's cap continue to bloom and produce red pods. Several white blooming, lovely scented, abelias continue to attract swallowtail butterfly.
