Well you have something ready to bloom for you there. Cher Sunray Gardens
Any minute now :) It really happens fast!
Is it "spider lilies". I have a patch of them right in the middle of the back yard around my bird bath. I haven't seen any spikes. My husband has been mowing all that area. Maybe I'd better get out there and check to see if mine are coming back yet...
It's at this stage I often feel the miracle. It makes my heart happy to see your photos. It was sad to leave my garden in Ohio. I had worked for Spring Hill Nursery Catalog for a time and had hundreds of bulbs that did very well. I've been in FL two years and have barely started planting anything.
I think your mums are the variety that bloom twice. Once in the summer and then late fall.
