The arching unbranched stems of this lily are clad with alternately arranged leaves in a ladder-like appearance. The light green leaves are oval to oblong with clasping bases and parallel veins. The star-shaped flowers have their leaf axils facing upwards. They can occur singly or in clusters. The graceful, flowy appearance of the plant makes it an ornamental addition to gardens.
Since the soil needs to be kept consistently moist, do not allow it to dry out between waterings. However, avoid sogginess at all costs.
When the lilies fade in late fall, cut the flower stalks off at the base allowing the foliage to die back on its own.
Regularly feed it with liquid food or weak organic fertilizer to promote growth. Apply 1-2 inches of organic mulch after winter pruning. It benefits the plant by providing insulation.
Cold Hardiness: Through zone 4
