Brown Dwarf Lily – This hybrid typically produces a clump of narrow, strap-shaped green leaves to 3-4’ long and to 2-3” wide near the base from which rises a naked flower scape to 4-5’ tall which is topped with umbels of 8-10 showy, fragrant, trumpet-shaped, pink flowers (each to 4” diameter) which bloom in succession from late summer to early autumn. Leaves are evergreen in frost-free winter climates but will die back in freezing temperatures. Long-necked bulbs are large (to as much as 7” in diameter) with tapered necks.
Planting & Caring –
Easily grown in moist, organically rich, fertile soils in full sun to part shade. Large mature bulbs typically tolerate somewhat drier soil conditions than small bulbs. Best growth occurs in full sun, but this plant appreciates some light shade during the heat of the day in hot summer climates.
