Care Guide: Princess Lily

Princess Lily

Light: Full Morning and After noon sun. Keep out of Direct Mid day Sun as it is too hot for the leafs.

Fertilizer : A mix of fertilizer with NPK 12:10:18 is excellent and suitable for these plants.

Water: Princess lilies prefer a well-drained soil that is moist, but not soggy. Water regularly to keep the soil from drying out, but do not allow the plant to stand in water.

Pruning: On young plants, pinching off the stem tips promotes a fuller plant with more branches off of the main trunk. Remove dead branches and leaves immediately and deadhead blooms that are done. The princess lily multiplies through rhizomes, which can be carefully separated in the spring to create more individual plants.

Hardiness: USDA Zone 5 (Most of Michigan)
