As Summer reaches its peak the Lys becomes embellised in up to 30 pendent flowers of fiery scarlet, each one releasing a powerful perfume into the warm air. Graceful, durable and very long-lasting. The pretty 2" flowers are luminous coral-scarlet, recurved and produced in June and July. The waxy turk's-cap flowers are so lustrous they appear to have been lacquered. The flowers are hermaphrodite, they have both male and female organs. This deciduous Chinese native has grassy foliage of a medium green. Hardiness zones 3-8, (-37°C/-35°F, -10°C/15°F) in Winter. Lilium pumilum likes a soil well drained, rich in organic matter. Water regularly but do not overwater. It is very easy to grow and is resistant to basal rot, just don’t let it get dried out. This Lily will tolerate sun to partial shade and will tolerate almost full sun.
