Lily flowers are valued for their large, very showy, often fragrant flowers. The 6 plain or strikingly marked tepals (“petals”) are often trumpet-shaped, sitting atop tall, erect stems.

They are easy-to-grow, flowering houseplants. Lilies need ample light and water to produce the best blooms.

These hearty bulbs are easy to grow and require minimal care, provided that you plant them in the right place.

Planting & care

  • Plant lily bulbs in autumn.

  • Select a site with soil that drains well. How can you tell? After a good rain, find a spot that is the first to dry out. Water trapped beneath the scales may rot the bulb, so a well-drained site is essential.

  • Also, select a site that gets full sun. For dependable blooms, lilies need six to eight hours of direct sunlight a day. If it’s too shady, the stems will attempt to lean towards the sun or get spindly and fall over.

  • Most of the popular varieties prefer acidic to neutral soil, but some are lime-tolerant or prefer alkaline soils (e.g., Madonna lilies).

  • Loosen the soil to a depth of 12 to 15 inches. The deep planting encourages the developing stem to send out roots to help stabilize the plant and perhaps eliminate the need for staking. Also, deep planting keeps lily bulbs cool when temperatures soar.

  • Enrich the soil with leaf mold or well-rotted organic matter to encourage good drainage…

  • Dig a hole 2 to 3 times as deep as the bulbs are high and set the bulb in the hole pointy side up. Fill the hole with soil and tamp gently.

  • Space bulbs at a distance equal to 3 times the bulb’s diameter. For a good effet, plant lilies in groups of 3 to 5 bulbs.

  • Water thoroughly.

  • In active growth, water freely especially if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week.

  • Keep lilies mulched so that their roots are cool. The mulch should feel moist but not wet.

  • Apply a high-potassium liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks from early spring until 6 weeks after flowering.

  • Apply a thin layer of compost each spring, followed by a 2-inch layer of mulch.

  • Stake tall lilies.

  • Lilies do not rebloom, but you can remove the faded flowers so that the plants don’t waste energy making seeds.
