Embracing the history of many countries, Liliums are named after a Celtic word that means whiteness, and according to an age-old Christian legend, the first lily “sprang from the tears of Eve as she went from Eden.”
The species we offer are easily grown in just about any garden of Eden with well drained soil and a sunny spot. Excellent as cut flowers, Lilies should be picked as soon as they open. In the fall, you can cut the stems back when the foliage turns brown, which allows the bulbs to store up much-needed nourishment.
Shouldered on surprisingly short stems, full-size, long white trumpet-styled flowers with reddish purple backsides exude a heavenly aroma. Often blooming the first year from seed, this alpine form populates the mountains of Taiwan, and will make a luminous, smaller scale statement in your rockery or more intimate garden space.
Size: 10" – 12" high x 8" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
