The 2019 Fall Grand Finale in My Flower Mound Garden

"A thing of beauty is a joy forever: it's loveliness increases; it will

never pass into nothingness." ---John Keats

 

This week I discovered the Grand Finale in my Flower Mound garden. You can see how it grew from a sprout into individual stages, followed by the single plant, and finally a bunch of red spider lilies. After researching the plant, the correct name for the red spider lily, also known as red magic lily, or equinox flower is called Lycoris radiata. It is a plant in the amaryllis family. You can trace the history of its original roots stemming from China, Korea, and Nepal. From there it was introduced into Japan and then to the United States.

 

"The Japanese name 'Higanbana' means the other or that shore of the Sanzu River flower, decorate and enjoyable, the flower of the afterlife." The bulbs do reproduce. They have been coming up in my garden in the fall since about 1999. I received a few bulbs from a lady, native to Texas who didn't want them growing in her backyard anymore in her old garden. The first few years, nothing happened and then they popped! I have been told they are poisous to pets, children, deer and rabbits, which isn't a problem for me. Plus, the area where they grow previously had a large old Oak Tree that needed to be cut down. The red spider lilies gets full sun. They symbolize humility, devotion, and caring and I really do care!

Oh it's beautiful!  I have never seen it before, but we have a couple of other spider lilies here in HI.  They are very large plants.  How big is this one?

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - Each stem has one flower. In full bloom they get to be about the size of a grapefruit if you count the pointed stems.

I would love to see your Hawaiian spider lilies!

Patricia, love the spider lilies. I haven't planted these. Well, if I did the deer would eat them. They ate 3 of my mum plants this week.

Oh, that is stunning, Patricia! I have never seen one but, love that they come back year after year. Do they come in other colors? Probably not, since they are called red spider lilies but, wondered if there were pink or purple spider lilies?!
