    Frequently Asked Questions

    To grow Purple Dream lilies, you should start by selecting a location with well-draining soil and partial to full sun exposure. The bulbs should be planted about 6-8 inches deep and 8-10 inches apart. Make sure to water regularly and fertilize with a balanced fertilizer.

    As the flowers begin to bloom, you can deadhead them to promote additional blooms. After blooming has finished, allow the foliage to die back naturally, which will provide nutrients for the bulbs to store for the next growing season. With proper care, Purple Dream lilies should thrive and provide beautiful blooms for years to come.

    When planting Purple Dream lily bulbs, it is important to plant them with the pointed end facing upwards. This is because the pointed end is where the shoot will emerge from the bulb. If the bulb is planted upside down, the shoot will have to work harder to grow upwards toward the surface, which can cause it to become weaker and potentially fail to bloom.

    Therefore, to ensure the best chance of success, plant Purple Dream lily bulbs with the pointed end facing upwards and the flat end downwards. The planting depth should be about three times the height of the bulb.

    Purple Dream lilies, also known as Oriental lilies, can be left in the ground over winter as they are hardy plants that can survive cold temperatures. However, it is important to ensure that the soil is well-drained to prevent waterlogging and root rot.

    Adding a layer of mulch around the plants can also help protect them from extreme temperatures. In areas with severe winters, it may be best to lift the bulbs and store them in a cool, dry place until the following spring. Purple Dream lilies are hardy in USDA climate zones 3-9.

    Overall, leaving Purple Dream lilies in the ground over winter is possible but proper care and attention should be given to ensure their survival.

    To encourage your Purple Dream lilies to grow, you can follow these simple steps:

    • Plant them in well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter.
    • Place them in a location that receives plenty of sunlight but also has some shade during the hottest part of the day. They need at least 6-8 hours of sunlight.
    • Water them regularly, making sure not to overwater or underwater.
    • Fertilize them with a balanced fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season.
    • Deadhead the spent flowers to encourage new growth.

    By following these steps, you can help your Purple Dream lilies thrive and produce beautiful blooms.
