Dug this morning!
Red Spider Lily (Lycoris radiata)
Hardy from zones 7-10, part shade to full sun.

Offering in batches of 25 for $24 + $6 shipping. Each batch will have at least 10 bulbs of blooming size. I can take a pic of your batch to show you. These go for about $2 each on the name-brand bulb sales websites.

They are blooming now, so won't be expected to bloom again until next year around this time.

They bloom reliably every year, and are extremely long-lived and need no care after being put in the ground (which should be done as soon after receiving as possible.) Mature bulbs make baby bulb offsets, so each year you should see more blooms from your patch. After blooming, there's a short rest period, then the foliage comes up for spring and dies back about 2 months before the blooms show up. Unlike some bulbs that have large, dying foliage after blooming, L. radiata foliage is very small, looks like grass, unobtrusive. They will even bloom in a mowed lawn, as long as the buds aren't mowed-off when they start to emerge.

Send me a private note on here if interested. Thanks!
