Do You Think This Is A Large Embarrassed Dandelion? The Blood Lily

Do You Think This Is A Large Embarrassed Dandelion? The Blood Lily

No, this is a Blood Lily also known as a Firecracker Lily and it always blooms for Memorial Day. It only lasts a few days but is so unusual and so pretty that I can't wait to see it. I only have two bulbs and haven't had any success in having them multiply so I guess I will have to order more. You can get them on the internet here. 

Blood Lilies grow in Zones 7-11. The blossoms reach 6-10 inches across, place in average to moist spots or they container well.

I think it's appropriate that it blooms on Memorial Day Weekend when we all need to remember our heroes.


Blood Lily

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend and don't forget to remember.

Larry and Sheila - it is a great looking bloom.

Rich - it does last about 5 days but then the stem starts to droop over. Sometimes we stake them up.

Tom - I like the name Firecracker Lily better. The history of the blood lily name is rather gloomy.

Jeanne - they probably grow there but most people don't seem to know about them.

Kristen - thanks. You take care too.

Alexandra - your garden must be a riot of color like ours. We both like everything! Have fun this weekend.

Sharon - it is beautiful and looks even brighter when the sun is on it. Take care of yourself this weekend.

Dale - thank you.

Belinda -  It does, thanks! Hope Rocky is having a great weekend. (you too, of course).
