Lilium (Lily)

Lilies feature some of the most attractive and valuable bulbous plants known. They may stay undisturbed in the same place for years. Wild species usually make only small bulbs or stolons in contrast to those massive nursery raised hybrids. Few Lilium species prefer alkaline soil, most will do well in a well drained, humus rich soil on a peat basis. Some more adaptable Eurasian Lilium will thrive in any good soil.
Sow from autumn to late spring (around April) in any well drained, humus rich and sandy soil, which suits for most Lilium species. Pre-cultivation in pots for 2 years. Keep pots in a sunny and protected spot in winter. Transplant young bulbs in early spring.
Note: Certain Lilium species (especially some of the N American Lilies) show a hypogeal germination, i.e. in the first year after sowing they will first make a bulblet before the first true leaf appears in spring the second year.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
