Lilium

Lily

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.

Stretching across Europe to Mongolia, the original Turk’s Cap, Lilium martagon inhabits a broader range than any other Lily. This variety’s tapered, luminous towers feature up to fifty waxy pendant flowers composed of strongly recurving pristine white petals. Anchored by whorled, lustrous deep green foliage, the heavily scented blooms look absolutely sublime when planted amid Stipa gigantea.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 10"–15" wide; hardy to zone 4.
