(aka: Hymenocallis acutiflora v. riparia) Hymenocallis riparia is an easy-to-grow spider lily hailing from the southwest Mexican states of Jalisco and Colima, where it grows along streams. While it prefers wet soil, we have grown it with great success in typical garden soils. The 2' wide clumps of narrow, fleshy green leaves are topped in June with 18" spikes of white spider-like flowers. Thanks to bulb guru, the late Thad Howard of Texas, for sharing seeds of Hymenocallis riparia with us.
