This great US native, discovered in 1951, calls the ditches and swamps from east Texas across to Alabama home. This offering is a clone from a population in Rayville, Louisiana (Richland Parish). Hymenocallis liriosme is composed of glossy hippeastrum-like leaves emerging from a black-sheathed bulb. This form has shorter flowering stalks (20" tall) than the other clones we have offered. The stalks top the clump in early May (NC) with a cluster of 4-7 nocturnally fragrant, upfacing, white-cupped flowers highlighted with bright yellow throats. This garden plant is very easy to grow in average to slightly moist soil.
