White spider lily - Hymenocallis - summer blooming - huge, tantalizing-fragrant white flowers that are nearly 7 inches wide. Has deep green, sword-like foliage and 2-foot tall stems and usually bear from two to nine fragrant flowers. Full to part sun. My die down each winter and come back each year...very low maintenance and self-muliply. Spider lilies are perfect around water features in the landscape. They excel in a tropical-style garden with bananas, elephant ears and ferns. Louisiana iris lovers may want to have bold drifts of white spider lilies separating some of that plant's bright purples, blues or yellows. These are well established bulbs. Would like plants from my WANT list, but I'm open, please ask.

Hi, I have the Pineapple Lily (Eucomis) and mine are the
nice purple green foliage that is kind of rare too. I also have the hardy purple or green oxalis or shamrock that blooms. Like a hardy cyclamen. I would love to make a trade with you for a large crinium lilly bulb and the white spider lily. I also have Jack in the pulpit and magenta trillium. I also have some nice Iris. Let me know what you think.......

Hmm, I'm coming to this thread quite late in the game . . . But, if you're still looking, I have some fun stuff you might like. I have lots of big white callas (the traditional callas that get to about 3'-4' tall), fragrant yellow ginger (Hedychium flavescens), lots of Red Hot Pokers, white Lily of the Nile (Agapanthus) and other things on my trade list. Let me know if any of this sounds tempting to you. Thanks!
