Finding Beauty Friday
The beauty I'd like to share this week is a special find that shows up every year around this time. I love
walking out one morning and there they are in all their glory....It's what I've always called the Mystery Lily, Their scienific name is Lycoris radiata (red spider lily) is a plant in the amaryllis family, Amaryllidaceae.
The red spider lily has many aliases; they are Spider Lily, Naked Lily, and Mystery Lily. It will bloom in late summer and be around 24–28 inches (60–70 cm) tall. The leaves remain green all winter long and at the first hint of warm weather the following spring, they will die. The Lycoris radiata is a perennial plant.
