Brilliant Dreams is based on the natural herbal extract galanthamine, from the bulb of the Red Spider Lily plant. The Red Spider Lily (Lycoris radiata) is native to China and Japan.
In the wild, this beautiful, medicinal herb is most likely to be found in clusters on the ridge of rice fields, in meadows, and along river banks. It blooms in the fall. Although the flowers are beautiful, it is the bulb that provides the dream enhancing natural extract galanthamine.
The red spider lily is sometimes called the hurricane lily or magic lily and has become a popular addition to gardens in the southern United States.
