Spider lilies are very distinct-looking plants that can make for a stunning gift when featured on any number of items. The spider lily is a summer bulb with white flowers and lush green leaves. This plant is also called ismene, but it's thin, spidery blossoms have given it the nickname of spider lily. Whether your recipient is a gardening enthusiast or simply enjoys the beauty of nature's many varied creations, a gift featuring a spider lily is sure to delight her.
Fans of the spider lily's delicate elegance can enjoy this flower year round with a few sprays of silk spider lilies. Combine these wispy white blossoms with roses for a romantic bouquet, or work them in with calla lilies and day lilies for an exotic and tropical look. With silk flowers, you can combine any selection of flowers regardless of their growing needs or seasonal availability. When giving these silk flowers as a gift, arrange them attractively in a colorful vase and anchor the stems in floral clay or foam. You can find silk flowers in most craft stores or online at sites such as GandGWebStore.com.
