Trumpet Lily Hybrids
Bloom Time: July - late summer
Generally available for spring delivery only. The trumpet-like blooms of this hybrid group are usually fragrant. The species lily L. regale (regal lily) is a parent to many of these beautiful flowers. Trumpet Lilies are great producers with long lasting blooms, and heavy flowers almost always require staking. Second and third lateral buds appear throughout the later half of their season. Plant them where you need late-season color.
Species, or “Wild” Lilies
Bloom Time: various bloom times, including early fall
These are the parents of the above groups, and include some of our most iconic lilies – such as the tiger lily (L. lancifolium), regal lily (L. regale), and the martagon lily (L. martagon).
They will bloom at different times depending on species, and often prefer a part-shade environment. Wild lilies can often make their homes in challenging soils and hard-to-reach spots.
