spider lilie/peruvian daffodil ???

I am a total rookie/ignoramus when it comes to flowers of any sort.

Several years ago I brought home a beautiful white potted lilie which I believe is a spider lilie. I was told it would bloom once, maybe twice, and never bloom again. So when the first bloom withered, I transplanted the plant outside and basicly ignored it. Its home is close to the garden hose faucet, where it gets water on an irregular basis. After about 3 years of neglect, it bloomed again. Then about three years after that, which is now, it bloomed again--5 blossoms.

Now, those blossoms appear to be producing babies! Bulbs, I guess, rather than seed pods. My question is, what should I do with the babies to possbly get new plants?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might offer.

Hi Jan! Sorry that noone has responded to your question as of yet. Can you post a pic of it?


RE: spider lilie/peruvian daffodil ???

I have never grown Hymenocallis but I looked them up and saw a reference to the fact that the seed pods sometimes germinate while still on the mother plant. Do you think this is what you are seeing?

Reference is on the last page of the linked doc along with growing instructions.

Here is a link that might be useful: Hymenocallis
