Rhodophiala (Oxblood Lily)
Rhodophiala (more commonly known as Oxblood Lily) look like miniature Amaryllis, which they are kin to. The flowers appear on the top of a naked 8" stem in August through September. The foliage emerges after flowering and persists through the winter. In late spring, the foliage disappears as the plant goes dormant. Oxblood Lilies were introduced in the 1850s by German settlers to Texas. You can leave oxblood lilies undivided for years; however they will produce little bulblets at their base which can be separated out. Other names are: School House Lily, Hurricane Lily or Argentine Oxblood Lily.
