Planting Guides

Lilium (Lily) - a huge genus of bulbous plants native primarily to the colder regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Although there are some sub-tropical species. The three biggest groups commonly grown include the Asiatic, Oriental and native North American species. The care of all three is similar.

Preferred growing conditions
  • Plant in a fast draining, compost enriched garden loam with full sun or a half day of partial sun. Lilies prefer slightly acid soil and are not a good choice for highly alkaline western soils unless you're willing to regularly acidify the soil with soil sulfur. Avoid clay unless amply amended with ample compost to improve drainage.
  • Mulch with commonly available mulch materials to a depth of 2 to 3 inches. Cool, moist soil is essential for optimum growth and flowering of lilies.
  • Lilies prefer consistent moist soil and need regular irrigation when conditions are dry. They don't like to dry out, but are prone to rot if their planting site is in a depression and accumulates water after a good rain.
  • Deadheading keeps the plants looking tidy and help them conserve energy for bulb growth and not seed production. But it will not bring them back into bloom.
  • Fertilize generously in the fall with a half and half blend of Yum Yum Mix and good quality compost. This can be repeated in late spring to help build humus levels in their soil.
  • Special comments
    • Oriental lilies are very fragrant, while Asian lilies are not.
    • Some of the taller varieties may require staking in windy climates, as they can get up to 6 ft. tall and be top heavy with lots of flowers.
    • Cut back to just above ground level in late fall or early spring.
    • Mulch heavily with a 2 to 3 inch layer in late fall as the soil begins to freeze. This is especially important when planting new bulbs in zone 3 and 4 climates. If snow cover is not dependable, make fall mulching a regular practice.

    Comments about High Country Gardens Asiatic Lily Black Out:

    I wanted this red lily for a red and white planting that I am developing by our driveway entrance.
    I planted several other varieties of Asiatic lilies and this one has done the best by far!
    I didn't fertilize, I just added a layer of dried leaf mulch from our immature compost pile and then watered daily. Others might not need to water so often, I planted on a slight slope in a very exposed area with lots of sun and wind. Plus we have been having hundred degree weather every day and 10% humidity without any measurable precipitation.
    There was even a fourth small bonus bulb in the bag of three! It's too small to produce a bloom this year, but I planted it anyway in hopes of next year. :-)
    Anyway, despite the deer coming by on their nightly rounds and taking one taste before deciding that lilies aren't their thing (after that first nibble they have ignored the lilies), it wasn't long before I had multiple blooms on one of the stems. I'm sure the others will follow :-)

      Q & A

      Plant with These

      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).
