Lilium 'Russian Morning'

Lilium 'Russian Morning' produces Turkscap flowers, yellow-orange with purple spots and distinctive recurved tips. The bulbs grow very near to the soil surface and are therefore best kept away from cultivated borders, where they may be damaged. Lilium 'Russian Morning' makes a bold statement when planted in groups.

Grow Lilium 'Russian Morning' in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Alternatively, raise in pots. Plant bulbs in autumn and allow foliage to die down completely after flowering. Mulch annually with well-rotted manure or compost.
