Pink Oxblood Lily bulbs | Rhodophiala Bifida PinkAccording to the renowned Southern garden writer Scott Ogden, "No other Southern bulb can match the fierce vigor, tenacity and adaptability of the oxblood lily." Now that's impressive. We are delighted to be able to add this rare pink version to the classic red oxblood lily our customers have enjoyed for years. Like the amaryllis, lycoris and nerine to which they are related, oxbloods produce their blooms before the leaves develop.
Heat waves, torrential downpours, drought, high winds - nothing seems to faze the hardy blooms of rhodophiala bifida. Introduced to this country by German settlers in the 1800s, who faced tough conditions to find and found a new home in Texas. They brought the color and vitality of these bulbs and blooms with them as a living link to their past and to commemorate the fulfillment of their dreams. Like the settlers, these bulbs proved tough and hardy, naturalizing well and prospering in the New World.
