White Spider Lily

Hymenocallis occidentalis

Description:

The leaves of Spider Lily grow in 6 leaf clusters and are present in spring but are gone by the time of flowering in the summer season. The flower stem is about 2 feet high and each stem has several flowers. This Spider Lily is a relative of the Cahaba Lily (Hymenocallis coronaria) which grows in the Cahaba River.

Habitat:

This is my friend's picture (I got her permission to submit it). It's growing from a bulb in her flower garden.
