About Night Rider - Lily Bulbs (Asiatic/Trumpet Hybrid)

Lilium asiatica

Seed Type Bulb
Plant Type Asiatic, Trumpet

The Night Rider is a new specialty lily that has made a big splash in the gardening community. A cross between Asiatic and trumpet lilies, these flowers are violet-black in the sunlight, and in light shade they look nearly black. They have a satiny shimmer that really adds to their magic! Night Riders grow to be about 4 feet tall, but once they've settled in, they can grow a little bit taller. The butterflies will thank you.
