Do You Think This Is A Large Embarrassed Dandelion? The Blood Lily

No, this is a Blood Lily also known as a Firecracker Lily and it always blooms for Memorial Day. It only lasts a few days but is so unusual and so pretty that I can't wait to see it. I only have two bulbs and haven't had any success in having them multiply so I guess I will have to order more. You can get them on the internet here. 

Blood Lilies grow in Zones 7-11. The blossoms reach 6-10 inches across, place in average to moist spots or they container well.

I think it's appropriate that it blooms on Memorial Day Weekend when we all need to remember our heroes.


Blood Lily

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend and don't forget to remember.

Toni, I love the look of this flower - so dramatic.  It doesn't look embarrassed at all, it looks bold and proud to me.
