Description:
Lycorus aurea. This beautiful yellow flower of the Amaryllidaceae family is an autumn flowering bulb rather similar to Nerines but with striking yellow flower heads. Each head has five individual flowers. They come from China and Japan whilst the Nerine comes from South Africa. The flowers have very long whiskery stamens. They are dormant over summer and their leaves appear after the flowering has finished. Their common name is the very apt Golden Spider Lily. They flower around the time of the autumn equinox.
