    Frequently Asked Questions

    Josephine lilies can be planted in the fall or early spring. How to plant these Josephine lily bulbs?

    • Choose a sunny spot with well-draining soil where they get at leazt 6 hours of sunlight.
    • Dig a hole that's about 6 inches deep.
    • Add compost or other organic matter to the hole and mix it with the soil.
    • Place the bulb in the hole with the pointed end facing up and cover it with soil.
    • Water the area thoroughly, and continue to water regularly throughout the growing season.
    • In the spring, the lilies will begin to sprout and will bloom in late spring or early summer.
    • Once they have finished blooming, allow the foliage to die back naturally before cutting it back.

    Josephine lilies are known for their large, pure white flowers and intense fragrance. They typically bloom in mid-to-late summer, with flowering lasting anywhere from 3 to 4 months. However, the exact blooming time can vary depending on the location, weather conditions, and other factors.

    It's important to note that after the blooms fade, the stems should be deadheaded to promote new growth and prevent the formation of seed pods. Additionally, the bulbs should be left in the ground for the following year's growth, as they are perennials and will continue to bloom year after year with proper care.

    Overall, while the specific blooming time of Josephine lilies may vary, they are a beautiful and fragrant addition to any garden or flower arrangement during the summer months.

    Josephine lily bulbs can be left in the ground over winter in areas with mild winters or well-draining soil. However, in areas with harsh winters or heavy soil, it is best to dig up the bulbs and store them in a cool, dry place until the following spring. Josephine lily bulbs are hardy in USDA climate zones 3-9.

    If you decide to leave the bulbs in the ground, make sure to mulch them heavily to protect them from freezing temperatures. It's also important to ensure that the soil is well-draining to prevent the bulbs from rotting. Come springtime, new growth should emerge from the bulbs, and they will bloom again in the summer.

    When cutting Josephine lilies, it is best to wait until the flowers have wilted and died before trimming them back. Cut the stems about 6 inches above the soil line, or just above any healthy leaves on the stem.

    This will encourage new growth and prevent any disease or pests from spreading from the old plant material. Avoid cutting the foliage back too early, as the leaves are important for the plant's energy production through photosynthesis. By cutting them back too early, you could potentially weaken the plant and reduce the quality of next year's blooms.
