Plant care: Hymenocallis Festalis 'Spider Lily' Bulbs from the Gold Medal winning Harts Nursery

  • If planting in the garden, you may need to lift and store your bulbs over the colder months to protect from frost. Lift your bulbs (once the stem and foliage has died back naturally) and store in a cool, dry place like a greenhouse or garage. Place bulbs in a paper bag cardboard box for protection. The bulbs should be cleaned of any soil (you can brush off any excess soil).
  • If planting in pots, simply bring under cover until the risk of frost has passed.

Hymenocallis Festalis – White (Pack 3 Bulbs)

This question was asked by
C. Bulmer

Hi,

A very basic question from a beginner- exactly what does lifting and storing for winter mean? I don’t have a shed or greenhouse, but do have a cool and dry loft, would that be suitable, and do they need to be stored in anything, eg.e soil etc?
thank you
Cate

Good morning,
No that is a good question and one that I’m sure other gardeners would be interested to know. If you have planted your Hymenocallis Festalis in the garden, once it has flowered, cut the flower head off and allow the stem and foliage to die back naturally, remove dead foliage and lift the bulb from the ground. Brushing off any soil. Place the cleaned bulb into a paper bag for example and store in a cool, dry place like a garage, greenhouse or shed. Your Loft will be sufficient too. Once any risk of frost has passed, you can re plant your Hymenocallis Festalis.
If you have planted your bulbs in pots, simply bring the pots under cover during the cold and wet months.

How to plant Hymenocallis Festalis

This question was asked by
Chris archer

I have received my delivery, thank you. How should these be planted below the surface or partly above, different info via Internet. Also should they be lifted during winter?

Plant your Hymenocallis Festalis bulbs with their neck and shoulders just above soil level.

Plant in a sunny position with well-drained soil, preferably sandy soil.

Once you see signs of growth and foliage, start to mist with water occasionally with water.

Water the Hymenocallis Festalis regularly.

Hymenocallis Festalis are ideal for planting in pots so they can be easily lifted and stored over winter to protect from the colder climate.
