Queen of the Lilies

About Spicy Oriental LiliesThese lily bulbs (Lilium) produce some the the most exotic and showy flowers in the plant kingdom. Indeed, casual observers will often mistake Oriental Lily Bulb blooms for huge orchids. Orientals prefer slightly acid, well-drained soil. Where temperature are consistently above 90 degrees F. during the summer, plant in dappled shade or where the hot afternoon sun will be blocked.

Planting Oriental Lilies: Lily Bulbs the size of your fist or smaller should have 5 to 6 inches of soil covering them. The old adage of "2-1/2 times the depth (of the bulb) works here. If you have heavy soil, it would be better to plant a bit more shallow or use a raised bed for better drainage.
