Western Spider Lily is everywhere....fields, bar ditches, swamps.  
It is like a wild flower there and blooms with the LA's.

	There is a similar spider lily circulating under the name 
Peruvian Daffodil, which does not bloom until late June and early 
July here so you have have essentially the same bloom in two 
distinct seasons.

	Ismene is another name for these, and there is a pale yellow 
one available, too.  It seems to be temperamental here as it did not 
bloom this year though the plants seem healthy.  It blooms with 
the Peruvian daffs's.

	I wonder how far north these can grow without having to be dug 
and stored over the winter.  Amaryllis can also grow outdoors here 
and be left in the ground over winter.  They bloom with the TB's.
