This is one spider you'll love to get close to! Spider lily is named for the long, leglike petals radiating from its central blossom. Blooming in spring, summer, or early fall, it is sweetly fragrant and accompanied by dark green, straplike leaves. Many varieties thrive in moist soil, such as at the edge of a pond or stream or a slow-draining garden spot. Its bold green foliage and exotic flowers give spider lily a tropical vibe. Pair it with canna, rush, and other plants that thrive in moist soil. Like other tender bulbs, gardeners in cold-winter climates can dig up spider lily bulbs and store them in a frost-free place for winter.
