Description

This hard-to-find lily is a show-stopper in shaded wildflower gardens. Native to Siberia and China this lily favors swamps, wet meadows, and wet woods. So that tells you to plant yours where they won't be flooded but will have plenty of moisture.

This fabulous lily, when happy, can bloom with as many as 20-30 flowers on a single plant.

The name, Turks Cap refers to the recurved petals, which someone saw as similar to a turban.
