General Description

Enchantment lily is one of the probably the most commonly and easily grown type of hybrid lily, Asiatic lilies. They typically bear clusters of scentless, wide-flaring flowers atop strong stems set with narrow, lance-shaped, glossy green leaves. ‘Enchantment’ is a vigorous Asiatic hybrid with bright orange-red, cup-shaped blooms freckled with dark spots. These occur over a long period in early to mid summer.

These multiply quickly in the garden when planted in full to partial sun and well-drained, humus-rich soil making them great for naturalizing. 'Enchantment' is also a standout in perennial borders, containers and butterfly gardens.
