Lycoris radiata

Spider Lycoris

Unusual bulbs with intricate spidery or Lily-like blooms seem to magically appear in the fall after leaves have died down in summer. Strap-like leaves appear in spring. Several species are available with red, yellow and pink flowers. Bulbs are poisonous. Grow in bedding or containers. Plant with Tulips and Daffodils. Let dry out in summer.
