Pollinators simply adore this Japanese import! A generous planting of Lycoris sanguinea, also known as Orange Spider Lily, will have passing bees, butterflies and hummingbirds stopping by to get a closer look. This unique beauty boasts uncommonly pretty, orange to red blooms that are among the first to grace late-summer landscapes.
