This superb and easy-to-grow spider lily hails from the Mexican state of Guerrero, but was granted US amnesty in 1986. Hymenocallis maximiliani makes a 3' tall x 3' wide clump, similar in size to Hymenocallis 'Tropical Giant', but with much narrower, glossy green foliage. For us, Hymenocallis maximiliani begins flowering in June and continues through July. Each 3' tall flowering stalk is topped with several huge, white, spider-like flowers composed of a central white cup and narrow white sepals that extend 7" tip to tip. Hymenocallis maximiliani thrives in moist rich soils but is incredibly tolerant of all but the worst drought conditions...a splendid and very floriferous garden plant.
