Peruvian Daffodil

DiOhio

By Diohio


Peruvian Daffodil (Hymenocallis narcissiflora, Syn. H. calathina, Ismene calathina)

Exotic-looking Peruvian Daffodil. This daffodil can only tolerate a min. temperature of 41 degrees. I pot them for the summer and lift in the fall.

i love these Diohio, are they the same thing that we call 'Spider Lily'? if so i have some, they were fabulous last year. i did'nt lift mine though but they look as though they are coming back! i can't think of the botanical name gonna look through my garden and see if it is indeed the same flower! i'll get back to ya!

For a minute I thought you had this one confused with another flower called "Spider Lily" but I guess not ! Wow, you didn't lift them and they're coming back? How cold do you get there?
