This wonderful Mexican native spider lily was virtually unknown since it was originally named in 1884 and thought to be extinct. In the early '90s, a few bulbs found their way into Texas, where bulb guru Scott Ogden was able to acquire one. H. eucharidifolia has prospered in his Austin, Texas, garden since that time. The broad basal leaves resemble a clintonia or eucharis. In midsummer, the easy-to-grow, fast-multiplying clumps are topped with 1' tall flower spikes, each topped with 2-3 upright-facing, star-shaped, white flowers. Unlike most hymenocallis, H. eucharidifolia prefers light shade.
