The presence of giant spider lily cannot be ignored in any garden. Dark green strap-like leaves may be more than 3 feet long by 4 inches wide. Flowers are shaped like tubes that flair open into a crown of narrow petals. The petals are white with a pink longitudinal stripe on the underside. Red and pink fragrant flowers sit atop a succulent, cylindrical flower stalk that is 1 to 3 feet tall. A 6-inch-long floral tube bears 6 petals and sepals, and rosy stamens from the throat of this tube. These striking, fragrant flowers appear most abundantly in the spring,summer and fall seasons of the year.
