Swamp Spider Lily

Spider Lilies, or Swamp Lilies–take your pick. I’ve heard them called both and a Google search finds an overwhelming number of variations on each name.

I do not know if these particular ones naturalized on their own around the swamp or if they were planted. The flowers are short lived, especially in the heat, and it is a delight to spot them in fresh bloom.

    1. No fragrance that I’ve noticed, Liz. Certainly not that strong musky one that many lilies seem to share. Next time I see one I’m going to check further — maybe it is more delicate and needs a close up sniff.
