Salmon Stars Lily is held high into the sun, returning year after year atop their sturdy stems of strappy green leaves! Standing tall and forming tidy clumps, the greenery looks great long after the blooms fade, but you'll enjoy these flowers for weeks in good summer weather!

Planting and Application:

Salmon Star Lilies are radiant stand-alone specimen plants! Use as cheerful focal points in containers and mixed planters where they add height and massive visual impact!

Bring the blooms indoors for floral arrangements!

Super fragrant too, you'll do yourself and your guests a favor when they visit by having drifts of these cheerful blossoms planted near your entertaining areas, or in vases on the table!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant Oriental Lilies in full sun, but these plants can tolerate partial sun or afternoon shade in the hottest of their growing zone range. Salmon Star Lily bulbs are easy-care and quite winter-hardy from zones 3 and up! Tolerant of a wide range of soils and conditions, they do best in anything well-drained and moderately moist soils, though once established, can be drought-tolerant. Deadhead after blooms fade, but keep the leaves to make food for the bulbs until the leaves turn yellow in the fall, then trim off clean to the ground and mulch well for the winter.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Deadhead After Bloom & Prune Back Late Autumn
  • Mulch Beds Well
