Wood lilies grow in mountainous regions and grasslands, filling the slopes and fields with their bowl-shaped, cheerful blooms. The long and narrow leaves are arranged in a whorled pattern around the erect stems. The flared petals add a splash of color to borders. Fruits are in the form of pods and there are usually 1-4 flowers in a plant.
Having average water needs, the plant needs to be watered regularly avoiding sogginess.
Cut back to just above ground level in early spring or late fall.
Fertilize generously in fall and late spring to build humus levels in the soil. Apply a 2”-3” layer of mulch in late fall.
