|A friend posted this on Facebook. I thought, if anyone would know what it is, it would be one of you wonderful people. :)|
Do any of my gardening friends know what this is??? It came up as a volunteer in my neighbor's yard and neither of us has ever seen anything quite like it before! (Deer seem to be enjoying it so it may be gone soon!) — in Swansboro, NC.

|Spider Lily Hemenocallis genus not sure which species. There are at least 18 species in the US and I counted 12 in Florida based on USDA maps. |
BONAP shows 14 species in Florida.

|According to the UDSA plants, Hymenocallis floridana is also in NC but it is a synonym of Hymenocallis rotata ..|
Hymenocallis rotata is also accepted on ITIS

|Duh. Teach me to pay more attention to what I read. I completely missed that it was in NC. I was looking at Sally's location in Florida.|
