Answer: Perhaps you planted Sprekelia, the Aztec lily? These plants are native to Mexico. The foliage looks like that of a daffodil. The stems are 1' foot tall, topped with dark crimson blooms that resemble orchids. Bulbs should be planted in the fall, 3-4 inches deep and 8 inches apart. The bulbs will bloom 6-8 weeks after planting and will continue to provide blooms if you alternate dry periods with periods of regular soil moisture. I'd leave the plants alone and allow the foliage to die down, then let the bulbs rest in dry soil. Begin watering again after about 6 weeks, and new growth should begin again, along with some blooms. Full sunshine is just the right exposure for your plants.
