Lilium ‘Black Jack’ has large, deep red to burgundy flowers with dark purple centers in late spring to early summer. The blooms are upfacing and unspotted. The stems grow to 2 to 4 feet in height. Black Jack belongs to the group of Asiatic lilies which generally bloom earlier than other lilies and have high bud counts on straight stems. They are the easiest to grow, are quite winter hardy and reproduce readily. Typically they are not fragrant. The unsurpassed grace and beauty of this lily makes it a lovely addition to the garden. Lilies love full sun, but will do well in partial shade. They tolerate hot summer days, as long as the bulbs are deep enough to remain cool. Lower plants surrounding the lilies will help protect their roots from drying out. Lilies make an excellent cut flower with long lasting blooms and buds that continue to mature and open after cutting.
May - June, July - August
