Lycoris aurea

The yellow spider lily is a beauty that glows in the garden with a yellow-gold like color. Softball sized flowers stand atop 18-24'' stalks. This bulb is for warmer zones and climates, but it survives well in our Zone 8 garden by the house. In Gulf Coast states, the bloom in the fall after a good rain is spectacular. Plant in a spot that receives sun in the winter. The bulbs can be in shade in the summer months as they are dormant under the ground. Add intriguing texture and new life to your fall landscape with the yellow spider lily.

The yellow or "golden" spider Lily (Lycoris aurea) hails from Asia and is hard to come by. It is in the Lycoris family, right along with the Red Spider Lily, but tends to bloom later in the fall after the red spider lily. It will multiply over time and requires full sun to part shade in the winter to continue growing, blooming, and multiplying. We recommend planting 4-6 bulbs per square foot for a dense display. This bulb is best suited for the warmer sections of the South, zones 8b-10.

PLEASE NOTE: The bulbs will most likely require a year or two in your soils before presenting blooms.
