This very rare spider lily is an East and Gulf Coast native, growing in riverine rock cracks. Despite this unusual habitat, it adapts well to moist garden conditions, and is very easy to grow from seed. Our plants are propagated from a population in Bibb Co. Alabama. The strap-like green foliage gives rise to 20" stalks in early summer, topped with 1.5" wide, very fragrant, petunia-like flowers...3 or more per stalk. From the center of each flower, emerge 6 evenly spaced white whiskers that extend well past the flower itself.
