2010 gardening giveaway!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!UPDAte""""thanks for all the entries and more giveaways coming!THE WINNER IS HELENA..SHE HAS BEEN EMAILED AND AWAITING CONFIRMATION,,,,,!!!!!!!!!!!!
1st up is Spider lily,aka lycoris radicus..My mind always goes to spring flowers when the holidays are over and one of my favorite flowers is the spider lily!
These are easy to grow and have naturalized here in the south,and are native to Asia,Lycoris Radiata is sometimes hardy down to zone 5 or 6 (be sure to mulch in zone 6 and lower).Most times they will bloom the following year after transplanting. They have green foilage in winter.
Plant bulbs in ground about 21/2 inches deep and in a few months you will enjoy the beauty of the red spider lily.You do not have to dig up each year they will go dormant and return the following year.They will reproduce more baby bulbs that you can replant,just dig up and separate..
When it gets ready to bloom a single shoot will come up about a foot and will form the spider lily on top.
It blooms in partial shade as well as full sun!
I have 6 adult bulbs to give away to start your bed!
