#ProPlantTips for Care:

Mammoth Lilies love the sun but do appreciate afternoon shade in the hottest climates. These sturdy stems do need staking to keep them looking their best throughout summer wind and storms. Plant in about any well-drained soil with moderate moisture and fertility. Deadhead after bloom but leave the foliage until frost so they can make food for the bulbs, then prune to the ground when they die back in late autumn.

Deadhead after bloom but leave the foliage until frost so they can make food for the bulbs, then prune to the ground when they die back in late autumn.
