Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Plant in spring, after the ground, warms to about 50º 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.
