    Frequently Asked Questions

    Yes, the After Eight Lily is a perennial plant. Perennial plants are those that live for more than two years, and they typically die back to the ground in the winter and regrow in the spring. This means that you can leave the bulbs in the ground.

    The After Eight Lily is a type of Oriental Lily that produces large, fragrant, pure white flowers that bloom in mid to late summer. It prefers full sun to partial shade and moist, well-drained soil. With proper care, the After Eight Lily can come back year after year and provide beautiful blooms for many summers to come.

    After flowering, After Eight Lilies should be allowed to die back naturally. This means leaving the foliage in place until it turns yellow and begins to wither. During this time, the plant is storing energy for next year's growth.

    Once the foliage has died back completely, it can be cut back to ground level. It's important not to cut back the foliage before it has died back naturally, as this can prevent the plant from storing enough energy for the following year's growth. It's also a good idea to give an extra layer of mulch before the ground freezes.

    After Eight Oriental lilies are a tall and elegant variety of lily that can reach a height of up to 18-24 inches when fully grown. These lilies produce long, strong stems that are capable of supporting their large, trumpet-shaped flowers, which can measure up to 10 inches (25 cm) in diameter.

    After Eight Oriental lilies are known for their stunning fragrance and bold, contrasting coloration, with deep pink petals that are edged in white. These lilies prefer full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil, and they can be grown in containers or directly in the ground.

    Yes, you can leave After Eight Oriental lily bulbs in the ground if you live in a region where the ground does not freeze deeply. Oriental lilies are hardy perennials that can survive winters in USDA plant hardiness zones 3 to 9, depending on the cultivar.

    In colder regions, it is best to apply a layer of mulch over the bulbs in the fall to protect them from extreme temperatures. However, if you live in a region where the ground freezes deeply, it is recommended to dig up the bulbs after the foliage dies back in the fall and store them in a cool, dry place until spring planting.
