Description

Related to the Amaryllis family, the Hymenocallis × festalis 'Zwanenburg' is a real stunner. The intricate blooms with a four curled and trailing tendrils surrounding the trumpet-like bloom have earned it many names. The Spider Lily is probably the most apt. But arachnophobes can relax, there’s nothing to fear from this beautiful spider. Between two and five of these intricate flowers, each of which can reach 15 to 20cm (6-8in) in diameter, are supported by each long and sturdy fresh green stem.

As an added bonus, Hymenocallis × festalis' lovely long-lasting pure white flowers also provide fragrance to your garden during the summer.

Gracy knows:
"The fragrant and whimsical Hymenocallis × festalis is sometimes called 'Peruvian Daffodil'. However, it’s not a Daffodil at all; it’s a cousin to Amaryllis!"
