Unlike most lilies 'Spirit of America' grows from a  rhizome, not a bulb, left undisturbed the rhizomes will form large clumps in only a few seasons. A Lilium pardalinum x Lilium michiganense hybrid, raised in Germany. Here on our Nursery the first flowers start opening from around the end of June, sometimes a bit later if the Spring has been cold. The flowers are deep orange, unscented and Turks Cap flowers in form, produces whorls of leaves, not unlike a 'Martagon' Newly planted bulbs tend to grow to about a metre tall, when established the stems can get much taller. Doesn't like being totally dry in Summer, we recommend a rich soil high in humus. Can also be planted on banks of streams, where it's long roots will grow down into the moist soil below.
