Common Name Shoal Spider Lily Variety  
Regional Names Cahaba Lily
Botanical Name Hymenocallis coronaria
Description After many years of growing this species we finally have enough to offer. It is commonly thought that this species must be grown in rocky shoals. While this may be the best condition for it, it is not the only way for it to be grown. We have found Hymenocallis coronaria to perform just fine in shallow ponds and pond margins. Smaller creeks and streams work well to, but be sure to anchor your bulb very solidly. Because the Homo sapien population has doubled in the last fifty years and developed a large percentage of the East. In turn we get extreme flooding as the result of to much impervious surfacing. These fast moving floods will strip the creeks and river of plants, including the Shoal Spider Lily, and kills some aquatic life. Because of the pollution and siltation of our southeastern streams and river this species it going to to have an uphill battle for survival in the wild. One big benefit of extreme heavy flood is that these forceful flood wash human discarded trash and debris, which is mostly construction debris, lunch cups and bags away from the stream beds and deposits it in deeper down stream bodies of water. Out of sight, but not always harmless to the stream Eco-system.
