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.

Native to the Himalayas, from northern India to Nepal and Bhutan, this highly prized exotic lily offers a peerless, bicolored pageantry of large funnellike greenish yellow blooms with recurved petals and boldly etched reddish purple throats. As many as eight, gorgeous downward facing flowers crest each medium-sized stem, clad in dark green lance-shaped leaves

Once established, the Lily of Nepal will spread by underground stolons that appreciate dappled shade and cool humus-rich soil.
