Q What’s this mys­tery bulb in our gar­den? RON & LINDA EYDMANN, BY EMAIL

A Your bulb is hy­meno­cal­lis (is­mene or spi­der lily), a beau­ti­ful bulb that’s hardy in mild ar­eas, though is most fre­quently grown in a pot so it can be given frost pro­tec­tion in win­ter. The el­e­gant flow­ers are pro­duced in sum­mer and last sev­eral weeks. Keep the plant well wa­tered and fed in sum­mer and al­low it to die down in au­tumn. Keep it al­most dry over win­ter.
