These little bulbs bloom every year without fail when the days get shorter. It's a true sign of Fall for me.(-: I have mine in a pot and they do just fine. You can plant them directly into the ground and they will do well too(-: I might divide them this year and move them around in different areas. It seems there are quite a few in this pot now.
Here is a little info about this amazing bulb...

How ironic that I was looking at those today in an online catalog & trying to decide if I should order some. Thanks for the info link. Beautiful blooms.

Beautiful, and very unique.

I like these very much. Unfortunately they always fail to bloom for me. Darn. I think not enough sun. I may try them in a pot now though.

I used to have some, too. And, yes, they always heralded fall's arrival. When I saw them pop up, I knew summer was on it's way out.

I have one in a pot & it's blooming now. The ones in the ground are taking longer. I forget where they are. Think maybe I'll put them in a large pot maybe with something else short so they can pop up anyway.
When do you move them?

Hi Brenda,
Thanks!!!

Hi pgl,
I would be glad to share some of my bulbs with you.

Hi nancybond,
Thanks Nancy(-:

Hi tina,
Mine don't get a lot of sun either.
mostly late afternoon sun is all.
Maybe they take a few years to get established?

Hi nola,
I like to see them bloom but that does mean the end of summer. So,its kinda a sad happy for me.

Hi lola,
I have never dug them up but I plan to this year. I have crocus in that pot with them. I need to dig them up before the crocus pop up.

Hi Joy,
I never move them. They sit there all winter/spring/summer/fall etc.
They always bloom every year.(-: I even forget to water them at times. LOL(-:

I saw lots of these at the Arboretum. I like knowing they will do well in pots!

Those are neat looking and also drought tolerant so perfect for my Georgia drought garden… A bulb for me if the moles and voles dont eat it...

how very apt that they are called hurricane lillies since their blooming heralds in the hurricane season! thanks for sharing.

Wow, those are beautiful! Who doesn't like to divide plants to get free plants?

very pretty, Cindee!

I have flowers which pop up in my yard every fall which look very much like that. I never knew what they were, as they were here when we bought the house. They are very pretty. I LOVE red flowers!

Anna said...

I like it! It's one of those flowers that give you a lot of bang for the buck. It is a very busy flower.

We were driving through the country the other day and there was this little house with a chain link fence. All along the fence were Red Spider Lily. They were in PERFECT lines just glowing! It was cute.

vertie said...

Wow, I love it. I'll have to give those a try.

I just love your spider lilies. Wonderful shots. And ain't it funny that, with their burning colors they herald another burning color show, that of the Fall. Beautiful post and thanks for a great idea.
