Flowering

From Mid Summer TO Early Autumn

Red Spider Lilies flower in late Summer to early Autumn. Flowers grown in shade will flower a little earlier, and the blooms will last longer (these flowers fade in heat)

 

Planting

From Late Winter TO Early Summer

Plant bulbs 3" deep and 8" apart in a partly shady site. Because they are leafless when they flower, they look best planted in groups. A handful of bonemeal in the planting hole is beneficial.

 

Propagating

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Propagate by removing and replanting offsets. Dig up the bulbs in Spring, when the leaves have yellowed and withered, and remove offsets, and replant them
