Red Spider Lily (Lycoris radiata)…

Mr. Don Hutton pointed me to this bloom behind the golf course clubhouse. The bulb must have been planted many years ago by someone who once owned a house there. This lily variety originated in China and is only propagated here by bulbs. The flowers pop up suddenly in late September or early October. The bulbs are deadly poisonous if ingested, and these flowers are widely associated with death in Japan and China (often used in funerals).

This flock periodically shows up on some unsuspecting homeowner’s lawn, the benefactor having paid a sum of money to the Ironmen Booster Club to support the athletics program. This morning the flock appeared at the Boltinghouse residence. Mike will now have to pay the boosters to have the fouls removed and relocated to another lawn. Beware, he may choose you next!  It is a clever and fun way to raise money for the program. I understand insurance is available for $10 or so to prevent this happening to you!

Also known as Purple passionflower, True passionflower, Wild apricot, and Wild passion vine.  The Cherokee in Tennessee called it Ocoee, It’s the Tennessee state flower. This one’s kind of scraggly.
