About The Cahaba Lily

About The Cahaba Lily

Hymenocallis coronaria is the proper name for the plant commonly referred to as the Cahaba Lily. In some areas such as South Carolina and Georgia, the plant is referred to as the Shoals Lily. The plant grows in rivers across the southeast United States. Current populations exist in South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.

The flowers bloom between early May and late June. The flowers usually open late in the day and begin to wither the next day. In most cases only one flower will open each day. The seeds take shelter in the crevices of rocks found in swift-moving currents.
