The yellow spider lily or "golden" spider lily is a beauty that glows in the garden with a yellow-gold like color.  They are often referred to as hurricane lilies, because the soaking rains of a hurricane trigger their blooms to emerge about a week after the storm.  Softball sized flowers stand atop sturdy 18-24'' stalks. This bulb is for warmer zones and climates (zones 8b-10), but it survives well in our Zone 8 garden by the house in Tyler, TX. In Houston, Mobile, Orlando, and other cities along the Gulf Coast of the United States, the fall bloom is spectacular. 


 Plant in a spot that receives sun in the winter. The bulbs can be in shade in the summer months as they are dormant under the ground. Add intriguing texture and new life to your fall landscape with the yellow spider lily mixed in with other fall blooming perennials like aster and mums.  We recommend planting 4-6 bulbs per square foot for a dense display. 


We love how the yellow spider lily behaves so differently from most flowers. It reminds us that every flower is unique. Normally, when you plant something, you expect to see it begin to grow within a few weeks with little shoots coming out of the ground. The yellow spider lily, like the red one, shows no signs of growth during the summer, but in the fall, after the first heavy rains, it will burst out of the ground on a naked stalk. Once the flower dies back, the foliage appears and stays green well through the winter and into late spring. The green foliage provides a lovely accent to your Narcissus that bloom from February-April.
