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).

Details

Our Evening Sunset Lily Collection pairs Asiatic and Oriental lilies for dazzling bloom power over a long season. This collection adds color and height to even the smallest of spaces. The colorful yellows, oranges, and reds of the 'Sunset Asiatic Lily Mix' contrast nicely with the blooms of ‘Forever Susan’ which pairs dark plum with vibrant orange for a striking color combination. Intersperse the planting with ‘Stargazer’ Oriental Lily which reaches 28-36" tall and keeps the collection blooming through summer’s end. Asiatic and Oriental Lilies can be planted among perennials to bridge the gap between spring blooming bulbs and perennial blooms. With their upward-facing blooms, these lilies are ideal for making bouquets. In the garden, provide full to partial sun and a rich, well-drained soil.

Collection of 12 bulbs covers approximately 5 square feet if planted together:

Sunset Asiatic Lily Mix - Bag of 6 bulbs

‘Stargazer’ Oriental Lily - Bag of 3 bulbs

‘Forever Susan’ Asiatic Lily - Bag of 3 bulbs

Bulbs are subject to change due to availability. If we make substitutions, we feature bulbs with similar attributes suitable to the collection design. Does not include planting map.

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.
