The spider lily is a Florida native popular for its exceptional foliage and snow-white flowers.

This clumping perennial has long, dark green leaves that reach two to three feet. In summer and fall, the spider lily produces many white flowers that are fragrant and long-lasting.

The plant grows quickly and makes an excellent self-seeding, tall groundcover. It can also be used in borders or as a specimen plant.

Plant your spider lily in full sun or part shade in well-drained soil. This plant is very tolerant of drought, wet conditions, and even salt spray but it can’t take cold temperatures, so it’s ideal for South Florida or coastal area landscapes.
