Description
You are bidding on two Red Spider Lily bulbs. Three if bidding reaches 900. These are beautiful flowers and spread fairly rapidly.

This deer-resistant southern heirloom bulb is one of the most popular plants in old southern gardens. The small, narrow, strap-like, blue-green leaves of Lycoris radiata go dormant in early spring. Then seemingly out of nowhere in August, the 15" tall spikes emerge from underground, topped with a deciduous azalea-like flower of bright red. After the flowers of the red spider lily fade, the leaves emerge again and persist until spring, producing food for next year's flowering. Lycoris radiata doesn't always flower every year...we feel the flowering is probably controlled by aliens who like to torment Earth-bound gardeners.
The foliage (leaves) that emerge after the lilies fade away is a dark green with a white stripe. Ours have bloomed almost every year since we bought our home, 15 years ago.
Good luck and happy bidding!
I only ship to Listia Verified Addresses.

The description reminds me of the "pink Lady" , the belladonna flower, that blooms on a leafless stalk in Spring, then sprouts leaves for next year's bloom. We have Pink Ladies here in CA., but i have never seen nor heard of the Spider lily. I would bid but I read online it likes water. I going toward a mediterraean landscape, so it is not for me Love the look, though. Good luck.
