HAVE: Have magic lilys and more

Posted by sandye1951 6 (My Page) on

I have an excess of magic lily bulbs, iris (mostly purple) and daffodils (mostly yellow). Would like to trade for summer bulbs hardy in zone 6 or shade plants other than solid green hostas. I am new to this forum so hope I'm doing this right?

Would you like some hostas that are green and white?

What is a magic lily? I have Purple Heart wandering jew, good for shade or sun, also a couple of elephant ears and some jasmine, if you are interested.

Magic lily (lycoris squamigera) is also referred to as "surprise lily", "resurrection lily", "naked lady". The leaves appear in the spring, die down, then the flower shoots up late July/early August. They seem to appear overnight. They get to be very large bulbs and are hardy here in zone 6. The flower is very fragrant and light pink in color with some shades of mauve.
