Description
This is one of the great wildflower blooms of the South American tropics. Even the Florida Everglades has a species of white Spider Lily.' They're famous for their very strong sweet fragrance, they grow quickly, and they make a wonderful show in the garden or in a vase.

From a gardener who's grown it: 'I decided to grow the Peruvian Daffodil for myself. I'm glad I did! Of course I was amazed by the beauty and fragrance of this flower, but I was also amazed by how fast it grew once I planted the bulb. In a few days, the new growth broke the surface of the soil. In less than two weeks, the bulb produced plenty of healthy leaves and started to send up it's flower stalk.

In less than a month, the first flower bud was in full bloom! The flower stalk produced four flowers that year. As the weather cooled, I stopped watering in preparation for the dormant period. When I pulled the bulbs out of the soil, I was surprised by how many new bulbs that were produced. And the original bulb was larger than when first planted. The largest of the newly formed bulbs was as big as the original when first planted. It produced a flowering stalk the following year.' ...from a subscriber at DavesGarden.com, gardening in Cleveland, OH.

        Superb plant

          Cons

            Best Uses

              A friend from B.C. sent a photo of her daughter's plant in bloom. We took a chance on growing them in ND weather, so grew them in a large clay pot on the east side deck. This made them portable if the weather turned cold, and safe from visiting deer. The plants grew over 3 feet tall and needed supports. Two of them produced three blooms each and one produced five spectacular blooms. When we were on the local Garden Tour, everyone said "What is that plant!" It was spectacular.'

              Exotic show-offs!

              By FlowerBabe

              from San Leandro, CA

              Pros

              • Easy
              • Grow Quickly

              Cons

                Best Uses

                  I tucked a couple of these into my bulb garden in back, and then a couple more in the front bed. Of the two in back, one bloomed with two flower heads, but the other hasn't bloomed at all. The two in the front bed both bloomed this week, looking very wild and exotic and framing the rose bush.

                    • Containers

                    Planted bulbs in container with Miracle-gro potting soil shortly after receiving them. Bulbs came up quickly but have not bloomed, yet(Sept.8). I have planted these before and they always bloomed prolifically. I am so disappointed.
