Hardy Lily, Asiatic ‘Nove Cento’

‘Nove Cento’ has large bold bright yellow flowers. Clear, sunny yellow and visible from great distances; terrific with painted daisies and yarrow. An upward-facing lily and great for cut flowers in arrangements.

Asiatic hybrid lilies are known for their large, often non-fragrant flowers (4-6″ wide). They come in a wide range of colors and bloom in early summer (Asiatic lilies are among the first of the lilies to bloom). This is an excellent, showy flower that provides contrast to the summer garden. Ideal for planting in the perennial garden, in containers or for cut flowers. These lilies are simply stunning in mass and are a great accent plant individually. They are of sturdy habit and do not require any support. Ideal for very exposed gardens.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Plant in spring, after the ground, warms to about 50ยบ F. 1. Dig a hole 6" deep. 2. Place bulb in the hole pointed side up. 3. Cover with soil and water thoroughly. Plant in late spring 6" deep in any well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Supply moisture and ample organic material through the growing season and mulch to keep roots cool & moist. As soon as the bloom has faded, remove it so seeds do not form. Allow stems to die back naturally in the fall. Divide every 3-4 years. Hardy Lily is one of the few summer flowering bulbs that may be left in the ground over the winter and still continue to bloom year after year each July. Excellent cut flowers but do not remove too much stem and foliage with the blossom as these are needed to build for the next year's growth.
