Shades of Belize

My new spider lily plants are blooming. These were just planted in the spring and have come on like gangbusters. This is the 'maximillianii' cultivar, and was purchased from YuccaDo.

I purchased these after being inspired and impressed with the gargantuan (5' +) hymenocallis that grow wild all over Belize. Hard to believe it's been nearly a year since we were there.

Lilies are not my favorite flower. (allergies) But those are pretty cool. Do they have a strong scent?

Hi Beverly - I didn't notice any scent from these plants, but mine are right next to a honeysuckle so it's hard to tell. :)
