Product Description

Turk's Cap Lily

The Turk's cap lily flowers are unique and gorgeous. These flowers grow to a nice size, and each one has six luscious petals. The petals have a sleek curve and appear to reach upwards as though seeking the warmth of the sun. The leaves near the base of the flower are a glorious combination of green, yellow and orange. As the petals of the Turk cap lily reach the center, they become bright orange flowers. The orange color becomes a bit darker as it proceeds to the tips of the flowers petals.

The Turk's Cap lily grow best in USDA zones 5-8.

There are several excellent purple dots with a brownish hue near the throat of the orange flowers that accent with beautiful antlers. The antlers vary from a brownish red to black and add a sense of stately elegance to the lovely blooms. The stigma surrounded by the antlers has a slight upward curl and is a whitish orange color turning to brown as it nears the tip. When the Turk cap lily flowers are in bloom, they become the delight and pride of any garden. The orange flowers contain little seedpods that are very close together. While the wind blows, the seedpods wings allow them to soar like a butterfly.

Turk's Cap Lilly (Lilium superbum) plants are started by planting bulbs instead of seeds.

These bulbs provide the growing power for the entire plant to sprout from the ground and have beautiful blooms during the late season. Each bulb should be planted 5 to 6 inches beneath the surface of your growing medium. After directly sowing the bulbs, water them in generously to help them root and grow. They prefer partial sun exposure and well-drained soil. A garden trowel makes it easy to plant these bulbs, and the flowers are well worth it. Turk Cap Lily bulbs can be planted in zones 5 to 8 in the USA.


The Turk's Cap Lily is shipped bare root.

    Very small bulbs, but healthy. I planted them in a pot to give them a fighting chance from critters ( voles especially). I can't wait to see what happens. They will be a ncie addition to my garden.

    The bulbs were small but appeared to be in good shape. The proof will come next spring.

    Color in the shade is a must!

    Sep 28, 2023 Reviewer: Marjorie Wolson

    I live in Northern Virginia, near the Potomac River and was thrilled to find a nursery that had the wide variety of native plants that I was used to seeing in the woods around our home as a child. My order arrived in good condition in today's mail. I have planted them all in areas similar to where I remember them growing long ago. I really appreciate Native Wildflowers Nursery shipping my order in the correct season for planting. I have high hopes for a beautiful spring!

    Lilium superbum rhizomes

    Sep 22, 2023 Reviewer: Anne

    I ordered 3 rhizomes. I had wanted 3 nice roots to plant. I received 7 small pieces of root. I will plant them out and hope for the best, but I suspect they are too small to flower next year.
