The black Asiatic Lily is a wonderful garden and cut flower with its bright yellow colour adding a lovely contrast to other varieties and flower types. Lilies come into their own beautifully in groups between perennials and shrubs and are very suitable for flower pots or planters. After flowering, they can remain in the ground and will come back to full bloom year after year. The planting depth of a Lily is between 10 and 15 cm. Before planting the flower bulbs, ensure that the soil is airy and permeable to moisture. Lilies like to be in the sun and should be planted in sheltered spots awat from the wind such as along a fence or between other plants and shrubs.
