Red Lycoris Radiata | Surprise Lily | Magic Lily | Red Spider Lily
With an explosion of color, red surprise lilies pop out of the soil in late summer and light up the garden. These colorful plants produce 2 foot tall flower stems which are followed by long, strap-like leaves. Outstanding planted among broad leaved hostas varieties that can take full sun, like Royal Standard, which frames the red blossoms with bright foliage. Outstanding showy bouquets that last over a week in water. These are long-lived plants that can be enjoyed for a lifetime and should be planted more widely. Deer resistant.
Water lightly until top growth emerges, then moderately during active growth cycle.
