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.
Donning an exotic turban-like appearance, nodding dark spotted, rosy-violet flowers with thick curved back petals and pronounced yellow stamens embellish tall, straight slender stems. The comely blooms, which hummingbirds adore and everyone likes to cut, reside above tiers of whorled dark green leaves. This stellar, undemanding European denizen enjoys enriched well-drained sites in a sunny border, garden bed or patio container.
