Asiatic lily 'Mapira'Lilium asiaticum

DESCRIPTION:Big starry blooms in deepest almost-black branching from long straight stems. Excellent cut flowers.
PLANTING: Bulbs thrive in free draining soil. Prepare clay soil using a clay-breaker and add well composted manure or mulch to help with drainage. Add grit or gravel to your planting holes if your soil is heavy, or plant up into containers. Plant bulbs with the narrow end facing upward, cover with a good layer of mulch to help regulate soil temperature. Lilies love bright sunny spots and dappled shade. May need staking in a windy site.
USE IN: Ideal for sunny borders, feature planting, large containers. Excellent cut flowers – pinch out the stamens to prevent pollen drop and extend the life of the flowers in the vase.
CARE: Once planted, water the soil to set the bulb in place. An occasional light watering is all that's needed until the first flowers appear. Water and feed weekly or if the soil becomes dry, give a good deep water. Once flowering is finished leave plants to die back, it's not the prettiest sight but don't be tempted to trim the yellowing foliage. The nutrients are being drawn back into the bulbs for next year.
CLIMATE: Frost-tolerant
