One of my favorite plants is a plant called Lycoris, more commonly in these latitudes, spider lilly, or pop-up lilly. It propogates from a bulb and the care of the plants is simple. You stick them in the ground, and when they get ready, they bloom. The most common variety is the red lycoris, and we have them planted everywhere the soil will support them. The red variety is called Higanbana in certain parts of the world.
Today I came home and was piddling around the yard, and I was surprised to see white spider lilies popping up along the fence row.
