Asiatic Lily "Mapira"
Dramatic, dark beauty
This hardy lily is one of the closest to "black" available. It naturally ranges in color from a deep mahogany, to a dark grape, to an inky black-purple, with darker brushmarks. Especially stunning paired with Patricia's Pride. Great in the garden or for cut flowers, and usually produces 5-7 flowers per stem in a season. Reaches heights of 3 to 4 feet.

Asiatic Lilies do best in full sun, but will tolerate some partial shade. They require a well-drained soil, and should be planted in late fall, once the ground has cooled down to abut 55 degrees, and night temps are hovering at about 40 degrees. After year one, they appreciate an application of organic granular fertilizer about 3 times a year. In fall, clear away the old foliage and, if you live in a cooler climate, apply a thin layer (no more than 2") of mulch.
