Planting Instructions: Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Grow in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Prefers rich, humusy soils. Intolerant of wet, heavy soils, particularly in winter.
Locate in areas protected from the wind. Promptly remove spent flower spikes. Crowns benefit from winter protection in USDA Zones 5 and 6. Consider a winter mulch or tying leaves together forming a canopy over the crown so as to prevent water from settling in the crown and freezing. Established clumps are best left undisturbed. Do not plant the Torch Lily deeper than 3 inches. The plants need a sunny location as they are intolerant of shade.
Pests or Diseases: No significant insect or disease problems.
