I have some Spider Lilies (*Hymenocallis*) for trade. We rescued these
bulbs (with permission) from a house/lot on the intercoastal waterway in
Palm Beach County, Fl - zone 10. The house and lot will be sold, bulldozed
and replaced with a much bigger house. Other Fl natives like Coontie (*Zamia
floridana*) were growing in the yard. The lilies were healthy and growing
in full sun to very light shade in sandy (Fl sugar sand) well drained soil
(these are not swamp spider lilies). The lot was adjacent to the
intercoastal so these lilies must be at least salt spray tolerant. I have
not seen them bloom and do not know what species they are.  I have pictures
of them before removal and can take pictures of the bulbs.  Here is a guide
for when they do bloom (
 Beautiful elegant white flowers.

For trades, I'm interested in rain lilies that I don't already have, other
lilies that will do well in humid zone 10, orchids, clumping bamboo,
bromeliads and other interesting semi tropical zone 10 plants. Due to
customs laws, this offer is for the US only - apologies to our many
international friends. Please email me off list if you are interested.

Happy July 4th.
