Lily Bulb Description

‘Lilium superbum’
Classification: Lilium Species (USDA Zones 5-9, colder climates w/winter mulch.)

(Eastern USA) The "American Turk's Cap" or "Swamp Lily" grows in moist meadows and woodlands in nature. Many bright orange, heavily spotted flowers darken with red-orange tips when blooms mature. Easy to grow in damp, not soggy, garden locations, established bulbs of L. superbum can grow 6-8 feet tall. The "monster" in the photo being tagged was 9 ft. 8 inches. July. Bulbs of this lovely species are brittle; the slender, "dogbone-shaped" bulbs, 1-3 inches in length, or larger individual "daughter bulbs" (depending on harvest availability) tend to break in half during harvest. What we are offering in the special package of 20 are those “halves”, some may shoot up a non-flowering stem next year, while others will simply make new daughter bulbs. Due to the specialized growing conditions needed for this more difficult lily, our guarantee is that they are true-to-name only, not for failure to grow.
