They are beautiful, Don. It is a spider lily (Amaryllidaceae).
Do they have a scent, Don?
I’m told they do, but have as yet not sampled it 🙂
I’m glad you found out what they were, Don. Very cool.
Me too … spider lilies 🙂
Ooh i wonder if we can grow these in the states, theyd look great in the garden thanks for the name^^^👍
I’m sure you can, probably needs a warm climate, so would depend on which part of the US …
Im in southern oregon we get streaks of 100 degrees fahrenheit, not sure wat that is celsius but im positive were warm enough
Could be, sounds like they are pretty tough plants actually … maybe they sell them at you local garden center …
I showed my mom your photo and she wants to plant some!
Yay, so down to the garden center !
Yea we gotta find em!
Such a delicate look of purity. Beautiful Don.
Thanks, they do look very delicate i do agree 🙂
spider lily, they have fantastic fragrance, absolutely fantastic.
Thanks, I’ll have to try smelling them next time !
I agree with the two previous comments, Don. Here in Vanuatu on our property, they are one of the few things still flowering after the devastation wreaked by #CyclonePam.
They look so delicate, but in reality they are tough as old boots ?
I guess they are, Don. They stood up to winds in excess of 300 kph. On top of that, although most of our frangipani trees got knocked around badly, some have already started flowering again! Gotta love Mother Nature!
She always manages to recover 🙂
yes.. the flower is called spider lillies… the red ones are most likely to be found in japan..
I’ve only seen the white ones, so far … but will keep my eyes open for the reds 🙂
i never seen the red one also, but i was introduced to it from an anime. It is popular/mostly found in Japan. *sorry for the grammar*
I understood perfectly don’t worry 🙂
Don, we’ve always known them as Spider Lillies. I have only seen the white ones – perhaps they are the common ones – but I’ve also seen beautiful red and yellow ones.
I can see where the name comes from, don’t you agree?
Blessings, Susan 💖
Very much, a couple of others have called them the same, so I think we have a winner 🙂
