Lilium Cultivation

Lilium
The lilies are a large group, primarily native to the Northern Hemisphere; as such they are frost hardy. Flowers are often quite large and fragrant and produced in late spring to summer; the plants develop from bulbs. Plants range in height from 12 to 96 inches, with 48 inches being quite common.
Cultivation
Lilies require well drained and fertile soil with a pH between 6 and 7.  The bulbs will rot if left in wet soil. Manures should be used sparingly with lilies. Plant bulbs approximately 6 inches deep ( Trumpets are planted deeper, this will be self evident when one sees the size of the bulb) and water thoroughly.  A single addition of balanced slow-release fertilizer applied just as leaves unfurl will keep your Lilies happy and well fed all season. Alternately, an organic fertilizer can be used monthly. The Asiatic varieties flower earlier than Trumpet and Orientals so plant for progressive effect.
