Lilium species (USDA Zones 5-9, the colder climates of this range must provide winter mulching.)
(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 slightly damp garden locations, established bulbs of L. superbum can grow 6-8 feet tall.
Lilies are extremely good garden plants and can be used in borders, pots, patios and greenhouse. They like a well-drained soil with plenty of humus.
