Planting+

'Queen of the Night' lily bulbs should be planted at a depth of 10-15 cm in light, well-drained soil. Loosen the soil with a fork before planting. Plant ideally in a corner sheltered from the wind, along the fence or between other plants, shrubs and trees. The flowers will thrive in sun. Plant in spring or autumn.
When there are signs of frosts protect the bulbs and any shoots that are showing as best you can with a thick mulch of compost or well-rotted manure, so you can enjoy your lilies next season too!

Care+

After planting do not allow your lilies to dry out. During their growth period make sure you water your 'Queen of the Night' lilies frequently and generously. To stimulate the development of flower buds and more beautiful flowers, feed with plant food containing potassium during bud forming. Translplant your lily bulbs every 4 or 5 years. In the new soil, they will find all the nutrients needed to rejuvenate them and they will flower brightly for years on end.
Keeping the lilies over the winter
'Queen of the Night' lily bulbs are very hardy when planted in the ground but we do recommend protecting them in severe winters. A covering of leaf litter or straw should suffice. Potted bulbs are more vulnerable so store them frost-free, in the pot. This should help your lilies survive the winter.
Your 'Queen of the Night' lilies will also appreciate a good mulch of compost/well-rotted manure over the winter for better growth of the bulbs next season.

Extra+

The lovely almost black 'Queen of the Night' lily (Lilium asiatica) is an early bloomer in the summer. The flowers are fairly open and face upwards. This variety is characterised by firm stems which makes them ideal for potting, but also excellent in the borders in a nice sunny spot.
