Rocky Shoals Spider Lilies at SCNPS Parks Mill Site
May is the month for viewing our rare Rocky Shoals Spider Lilies (Hymenocallis coronaria) and for the most spectacular viewing, you’ll want to visit our own SCNPS Parks Mill site on Stevens Creek in McCormick County in McCormick County. There, under the watchful eye of Dr. Bill Stringer and a team of dedicated volunteers and researchers, a thriving colony is making a robust comeback.
Due to the continuing health challenges, we’re not planning a big show for this year at the Parks Mill Spider Lilies site; however, Dr. Stringer and others will be on the site all day on Saturday, May 15 and May 22. SCNPS chapters or garden clubs wanting to make a group field trip can make an appointment to visit the site (after 10:00 am) or afternoon (until 5:00 pm). Directions and parking information will be provided with your confirmation.
Send your group name, group leader (cell phone #) and approximate numbers to Bill Stringer at [email protected] .
