Think all of those descriptions are correct, Kya, and also "surprise lily" I believe. Spider...the one I have took several years to bloom from the time I first planted. Last year I noticed there was "new" growth in a circle around the original plant and when I looked closely it appeared to be 8 new distinctly separate plants. They didn't put out blooms last year but they all have flower stalks coming up this year. Should be blooming any day now. I haven't educated myself on this lily but I do know one thing....a house just up the road from me has one blooming and the plant is very, very large. Mine will have to be separated and moved at some point because there is not enough room where it is at the moment.

Another neat thing is Van Bourgondien sells this as Magic Lilies rignt next to the "Spider Lilies"!!! Page 11 of the fall 2010 catalog if you have it. If not, they are online at www.dutchbulbs.com

WOW! $12.99? I paid $1 for mine at a yard sale. Guess I should have brought more. When I get around to separating the bulbs (I think you do that in the fall for this plant) I'll post on here and give them away. Mine are pink/white.
