Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews

Rare and mysterious, black flowers always generate interest and fascination amongst collectors, as well as amateur growers. Lily 'Black Jewel' is one of the darkest lilies currently available, and is a luxurious and expensive favourite of florists. The large, purple-black flowers create a dramatic focal point in the garden, either planted on their own or among other brightly coloured flowers in beds, borders and contemporary containers. Lily flowers are also superb for cutting; lasting for up to two weeks in your home. Bulb size 14/16. Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 20cm (8").

Flowering Months

Feed and water Asiatic lily bulbs regularly throughout the growing season, keeping them moist at all times. Deadhead faded blooms at the base of the flower where they join the stem to prevent the development of seed pods. When cutting Asiatic lily flowers for indoor arrangements, it is important to leave a third of the stem intact in order to feed the bulb for the following year.


After flowering leave the stems intact until they begin to yellow in autumn. Reduce watering and move containers of lilies to a cool, frost free position over winter. Lilies grown in borders can be lifted, cleaned and stored for the winter, however in mild areas most lilies should survive outdoors provided that the soil is not too wet. A mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost should be applied in spring. Divide and repot container grown lilies into fresh compost every other year.

Asiatic lilies prefer a moist, free draining, neutral to acid soil that is rich in organic matter. Prior to planting, add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil to give your lilies the best start. When growing lilies in containers, use a loam based compost such as John Innes No.2. Lily bulbs should be planted at a depth of approximately 3 times their own height and 15cm (6") apart. Planting deeply helps to protect the bulb during particularly hot periods. Choose a sheltered, sunny position where lilies will grow with their heads in the sun and their roots in the shade.
