Description

Sacred Lilies are easy to grow. The plants are rhizomatous and slowly spread, developing large colonies over time. The primary requirement is deciduous shade, allowing filtered light to reach the leaves during winter. It is not fussy about soils, but performs best in those that are rich in organic matter and not prone to excessive drought. It will tolerate drier soils once established, but needs regular irrigation during establishment. It is also an ideal plant for combining with other shade loving favorites.
