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 after the foliage turns brown, which allows the bulbs to store up much-needed nourishment.
With fragrant clusters of up to a dozen large, trumpet-shaped pure white flowers perched atop towering stems, this magnificent Lily’s strong profile delivers luminous late season blooms to the perennial border. After the blossoms are spent, the old stalks turn upward and look compelling in the winter garden or a dried bouquet. For a truly dynamic presentation, combine with Rheum, Salvia confertiflora and your favorite tall growing Nepeta.
