Add drama to your garden with the distinctive blooms of the Lionheart Tango Lily. These upright, flared blooms feature dramatic colouring: the petals are a purple so deep that it's nearly black. Flirty yellow tips and a dusting of gold in the throat contrasts strikingly against the dark background colour. These long-lasting flowers bloom from early to mid summer and are an exotic addition to floral arrangements.
This asiatic lily isn't choosy about location. Plant your Dutch-sourced lily bulbs 6 inches deep and 9 to 12 inches apart in well-drained clay, sandy or loamy soil in an area of full to partial sun. They thrive in zones 3 to 8 and are suitable for Southern gardens, unlike some lily varieties. This lionheart lily attains an impressive height of 24 - 36 inches and will spread 12 - 18 inches. If not lifted in the fall, these perennial lilies will produce even more blooms the following year.
The vivid lionheart lily deserves to be a focal point in your garden. Accentuate it with white, purple or yellow companions, or let it shine on its own in a container. Plant these lilies in rows with a backdrop of dark evergreens or along a fence or wall for a bold border. Create an air of excitement in your garden with the stunning Lionheart Tango lily.
