Black Pearl Asiatic Lily Bulbs
Black Pearl Asiatic Lily
DetailsLilium Asiatic ‘Black Pearl’ opens its blooms to reveal dark pearly black-red petals surrounding bright orange anthers. It’s breathtaking! Combine them with bright flowers where it will contrast beautifully – consider Monarda, Echinacea, and ornamental grasses. Or create a dramatic focal point for this beauty – it won’t disappoint. Let it grow up among other perennials or shrubs so its root area is shady and moist and where its blooms can have 6-8 hours of sun per day. Elegant cut flowers, deer, and rabbits stay away. In containers, use a pot with a depth of 12-18" and place one large bulb, or 3-4 smaller bulbs per 8-9" diameter container. 28-30" tall x 8" wide.

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).
