Fragrant swamp lily blooms twice a year
Common to many Florida swamps and marshes, the swamp lily or string lily is a great addition to the edge of any pond, lake or water garden. The herbaceous wildflower grows showy white, fragrant flowers in the spring and fall. A member of the amaryllis family, swamp lily bulbs can be divided and transplanted easily as they grow and spread in the garden. The swamp lily is a host plant for the Spanish moth, while the undesirable, destructive lubber grasshopper enjoys the leaves as well.
