Oxblood Lily



Oxblood is one of the showiest of the rain lilies. They are old fashion bulbs that send their blooms up after the rains of fall. You can leave oxblood lilies undivided for years and they will come back annually with the fall rains. But for best results you should dig up and divide bulbs in early summer as the leaves begin die down. Small bulbs may take one or two years to flower. Although oxbloods increase in number year after year they should be initially planted in masses.   They are of similar size and form to daffodils. These lilies are Drought-tolerant and suitable for xeriscaping (landscaping and gardening in ways that reduce or eliminate the need for supplemental water from irrigation). They are also known as, hurricane lily, fall amaryllis and, schoolhouse lily
