The Red Bog Lily, also known as the String Lily, Southern Swamp Lily, and Swamp Lily, is a perennial herb with an onion-like bulb. The leaves are erect to spreading and strap-like in appearance. Foliage is approximately 2 inches wide and may reach from 18 to 24 inches in length. Flowers have six, long petals, and are white with burgundy pistils and stamens. They grow on long stems, separate from the leaves. The Red Bog Lily will add a pleasing fragrance to the pond. Reaches heights of 24".

Bog Lilies should be potted in 5-gallon containers and placed in sun or partial shade. Water depths of 1 to 6 inches are recommended, but they will grow in water depths of up to 12 inches. In colder zones, bring the plant to a greenhouse or indoors with adequate light and water before the first frost. Repot in the garden when outdoor temperatures have steadied to 70°F or higher in late spring or early summer. Zones 9-11.

Approximate Purchase Size: 12" to 18"
