(aka: A20NC-022) This amazing and very rare NC native is found only in a few small populations in eastern NC. The seed from which our original plant was grown is from Columbus Co., NC. This small spider lily has very narrow, green leaves that are only 8" tall. In moist garden soils, it multiplies very rapidly. In late spring, the foliage is topped with 1' tall spikes of large white spider-lily flowers...a great garden plant.
