Yellow Cocotte Lily is bold and beautiful with vibrant yellow petals edged with a fine maroon rim. An Asiatic lily, the large trumpet-shaped blooms face upward. Gorgeous linear foliage spirals up the stems in graceful whorls. Prized as a cut flower as blooms do not produce the messy pollen common to lilies. Extremely showy and easy to grow.

30-36" tall x 12-18" wide. Yellow Cocotte Lily will brighten the summer garden with its sunny yellow blooms with a whisper-thin maroon rim. The vibrant blooms are infertile (pollen free), making them long-lasting in the garden and vase. A natural choice for cottage gardens and mixed perennial borders, Asiatic lilies naturally multiply over time, yielding more blossoms on stronger stems each year. Give them a rich, well-drained soil and plenty of moisture during the growing season. While plants tolerate heavy soils, poor drainage can lead to bulb rot. Plants benefit from fertilization at the start of the growing season and again after plants finish blooming. Harvest stems by cutting as the lower buds begin to show color and are about to open. Do not remove more than one-third of the stem when cutting as plants need energy produced by the foliage to replenish bulbs for next seasons blooms. Allow foliage to die back naturally before removing in fall.
