(48-84 in tall x 12-18 in wide) Native Turk’s Cap Lily stands tall with erect stems bearing green lance-shaped foliage. Its downward-facing blossoms curve back towards the sun, revealing speckled petals. With abundant 2-4-inch blossoms, and at a height of 4-7 feet tall, Turk’s Cap is a delight in the mid-summer garden. It will naturalize when happy to form colonies of dancing flowers. This native plant is known for attracting Swallowtail butterflies, including the Spicebush, Pipevine, and Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Butterflies, as well as Great Spangled Fritillaries. Plant in compost-enriched, moist soil with good drainage, where it won’t dry out, in a full sun to part shade location. Plant bulbs in groups of three for best effect. A compost mulch will help keep roots cool. Long lasting and elegant as cut flowers; remove the stamens to avoid staining and take no more than 1/3 of the stem to protect the plant. Common names include Turban Lily, Swamp Lily, and American Tiger Lily.
