How to grow Hymenocallis (Spider Lily)

Latin Name Pronunciation: hy-men-o-kal’is

Hardy to Zone 8 and into Zone 7 if mulched heavily in fall, plant these bulbs 4–6” deep and 6” apart in full sun to part shade in average, well-drained soil. In colder climates, grow in containers (1 bulb per 8” pot) with the tip of the bulb at the soil surface. Bring containers indoors before frost to overwinter.
