We received this wonderful spider lily from plantsman Logan Calhoun just prior to his death, and it's been a star in our spring garden ever since. This slowly stoloniferous Hymenocallis traubii produces small narrow-leafed, green rosettes just a few inches apart. Despite spreading, it is not psychobabble terms, it plays well with others. In late April (NC), Hymenocallis traubii is topped with a 1' flowering stalk which holds two to three narrow-petaled, pure white, spider-like flowers. A patch of Hymenocallis traubii in flower is truly magical when the sweet fragrance perfumes the air. While we have grown Hymenocallis traubii in a variety of conditions, it likes nothing better than a good pitcher plant bog.
