Comments about High Country Gardens Lilium philadelphicum:

Can be hard to grow. Rabbits love to eat them. I live in the country, so it is about impossible to keep the rabbits away from them. I love the flowers and that they grow in shade.

    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).
