Planting Guides

Growing Lilies: You can easily bring the spectacular beauty of lilies into your summer garden. They take very little ground space, so it’s simple to plant them in between other established perennials or shrubs. Most lilies can tolerate some shade and can be planted in spring or fall. Our Lilies are nursery-cultivated in Holland, not collected in the wild.

Q & A

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
