    Frequently Asked Questions

    Rubrum lilies prefer to be planted in a location that receives full to partial sun exposure and well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. They also require adequate moisture, so it is important to ensure the soil does not dry out completely. Rubrum lilies can be planted in garden beds, borders, or containers, but they thrive best in areas with good air circulation and protection from strong winds.

    When planting, make sure to space them at least 12 inches apart and plant them at a depth of approximately 6 inches. Overall, the best place to plant Rubrum lilies is in a sunny, well-drained location with plenty of moisture and good air circulation.

    Rubrum lily bulbs should be planted in well-drained soil, about 6 inches deep and 9-12 inches apart. The pointed end of the bulb should be facing upwards. They prefer a location that receives full sun to partial shade.

    Before planting, amend the soil with organic matter to improve drainage and fertility. Water the bulbs immediately after planting and keep the soil moist but not waterlogged throughout the growing season. Mulching around the bulbs can help retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Rubrum lilies can be planted in either the spring or fall, but fall planting is preferable as it allows the bulbs to establish before winter.

    Rubrum lilies, also known as Oriental lilies, do not necessarily need to be planted in the ground. These bulbs can be grown in containers or raised garden beds as long as they have good drainage and receive sufficient sunlight.

    However, planting Rubrum lilies directly in the ground can offer more stability and protection against fluctuations in temperature and moisture levels. Additionally, planting in the ground allows for natural growth and expansion of the bulb over time.

    Ultimately, the decision to plant Rubrum lilies in the ground or in a container depends on the gardener's preferences and the specific growing conditions in their region.

    To get Rubrum lilies to grow back every year, you should plant them in well-drained soil with plenty of organic matter, such as compost or peat moss. Rubrum lilies require full sun to partial shade and consistent moisture to thrive.

    In the fall, cut back the foliage after it has turned yellow and died back naturally. Add a layer of mulch around the base of the plants to protect the bulbs from freezing temperatures. Rubrum lilies are hardy to USDA zones 3-9 and should be left in the ground year-round for best results.
