1-2'H Perennials

These perennials usually remain in the 1 to 2 feet high range under most conditions. They are still low enough for the front of perennial border, garden, and landscape and some of the rhizomatous species will make low to medium height groundcovers. Their tidy habits also lend them to use as fillers and spillers for container specimens and in combinations for small to medium sized containers. Growing conditons and how well a plant is established may affect it's ultimate size.

The Spring Spiderlily, Hymenocallis lirosme, is a spring flowering bulbous native perennial with upright to arching medium green sword shaped foliage. It is typically found growing in areas that are wet or are consistently moist, at least during the spring and early summer when the plant is in active growth.
