Wrensday: Spider Lilies

I want to share one of my favorite plants with you. It is called a "Spider Lily" or a "Surprise Lily". The botanical name is Lycoris radiata. It is called a Surprise Lily because it pops up around this time of the year, seemingly overnight. It does not have any foliage. I don't remember ever planting it. It does grow from a bulb and you can purchase them online.

If you want to plant these beauties you'll have to plant them in the spring.
