Silent Sunday: The first oxblood lily


  1. Is this growing in a pot? In the ground? I don't know what an oxblood lily is. It is very pretty.

  2. It's in the ground, ccl. A common name for the plant is "hurricane lily" because they bloom at this time of year when hurricanes are often most active in the Gulf. They usually need rain to make them bloom, but I've been watering the bed they're in for the last month, trying to fool them into thinking it's raining. Looks like I fooled one of them anyway!
