Spider lily plants bloom in bold red, pink, white and even yellow shades with long, curling filaments. Also called magic lily and resurrection lily, pink lycoris are especially cold hardy and fragrant. Their bloom stalks pop up, seemingly out of nowhere, in mid to late summer, which is how they get their common names.
Spider lilies make excellent, dramatic cut flowers and are extremely long lasting in vases.
Native to southern and eastern Asia, spider lilies are perennial flowers that are highly resistant to deer and gophers. They prefer partial shade and well-drained soil.
