Details

Lilium 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.

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

Suggested Companion Plants:

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).
