Given the right conditions, Oriental lilies can often reach a height of 5 to 7 feet. They have trumpet shaped flowers that face outward and hang down. As the bulbs get older, Oriental lilies multiply and form a good sized clump. They like rich, moist, well-drained soil in sun. Choose lily bulbs that are plump without mould or soft areas. Plant bulbs about 18" apart and twice as deep as their circumference (up to a depth of 10"). After they finish flowering, be sure to leave the foliage as it is needed to produce the flowers for the following year.
