Beach Spider Lily, aka Peruvian Daffodil, aka Hymenocallis littoralis, looks neither like usual lily nor daffodil. That probably makes it so captivating and mysterious.
Hymenocallis littoralis is South Mexico and Central America native. It is widespread in coastal areas such as seasides or riversides, hence the name.
It is a beautiful plant with stem growing 24—28 inches (60—70 cm) tall. With flowers in full bloom, the plant is even taller. The flowers are large and white, resembling huge spiders, vanilla-scented. The leaves are narrow-shaped and long. Beach Spider Lily grows both indoors and outdoors. Indoor plants require big containers, and once grown outdoors, love sun and tropical climate.
This plant is not toxic for pets.
