information: Easter Lilies are a very popular
holiday flowering house plant.
When purchasing an Easter Lily
one should always
ask for Colorado Grown plants. Locally grown Easter Lily plants are
healthier and full of energy... unlike plants that have been
shipped across the country, sat in a warehouse, and then sold on
the mass market.
Easter Lily flowers are short lived and bruise
easily. With this in mind select an Easter Lily with one or two open flowers and
several closed or tight flower buds that will soon be flowering. When a new flower opens, the yellow pollen
sacks should be removed to avoid petal staining. Indoors place your
flowering Easter Lily in an area of the house with bright
filtered light. Keep the soil moist at all times, but never soggy. There is no need to fertilize
your Easter Lily plant while it is kept indoors.
After danger of frost has passed you may plant your Easter Lily in a partially shaded area outdoors.
The following spring your Easter Lily plant should grow back and reward you with many
Your local Garden Center or Floral Shop will have Easter
Lilies available in 6" or 8" containers, most
with several plants in the pot.
