Lilium formosanum var. pricei

Formosa Lily, Dwarf

The Dwarf Formosa Lily, the flower spikes carry a dozen or so intensely fragrant, white, 3-6'' trumpets, some with purplish exterior striping. After flowering, the seed stalks turn upward, making wonderful winter interest or great additions to dried arrangements. Short lived but self seeds and will naturalize wonderfully if allowed. You can extend plant life by deadheading and not allowing to set seed. Grows in poor acidic soil and does well in hot and humid late summer conditions.

Lilium superbum

Lily, Turk Cap

This amazing native bulb, Lilium superbum, grows from 3-7' high, and typically has 3-7 blooms, but exceptional specimens have been observed with up to 40 flowers on 10' stems! It is capable of growing in wet conditions, once established. It is fairly variable in size, form, and color. The color is known to range from a deep yellow to orange to a reddish-orange 'flame' coloring, with reddish petal tips. The flowers have a green star at their center than can be used to distinguish Lilium superbum from the Asiatic Tigerlilies that frequently escape from cultivation. The species ranges from New Hampshire south to Florida, and west to Missouri and Arkansas. The roots were a food source for Native Americans, and the flowers provide nectar for Hummingbirds and larger insects. Common names are many: Turk's Cap Lily, Turban Lily, Swamp lily or American Tiger Lily.
