Product Description

White Philippine lilies (Lilium formosanum), known also as the Formosa Lily, are great summer blooming lilies for Southern US gardens.  They produce viable seed from their flowers; thus, there is a high degree of variability in the selections.  Some can be 6 feet tall!  Others, such as these, are "dwarf" selections around 3-4 feet tall. They can also bloom at different times of the year. This selection is an early booming dwarf selection that blooms around 3 feet tall and blooms early to mid May.  The plants will grow all summer and go dormant in the winter.  Leave the spent flowers on the stalks and get ready for a treat--the seed pods form a rusty brown color towards the fall, turn upwards, and look like a garden candelabra. Think Victorian candelabra meets Dia de los Muertos!  Cut the seed stalks off and walk around your garden blessing it with the candelabra and let the papery seeds be carried by the wind and  fall out where they may.  Seeds can form a small blooming size bulb within 2 years. Enjoy this early summer delight!
