Botanical name: Lycoris aurea Family: Amaryllidaceae (Nargis family)
Golden Spider Lily originated from limestone areas of China. The spidery flowers face upwards and are a orange-cadmium yellow. It can often be a difficult species to get into flower. It requires a hot dry resting period during summer to promote flowering. Lycoris are splendid autumn-flowering bulbs when their requirements are met, and make excellent garden subjects and provide a good supply of cut flowers. The golden spider lily is listed as a critically endangered plant in the wild, although it is cultivated in the gardens.
