Black Charm Asiatic Lily (Lilium asiatica ‘Black Charm’)

Black Charm Asiatic Lily

Mysterious Black Charm Asiatic Lily (Lilium asiatica ‘Black Charm’) is a highly sought-after, dramatic color of black blooms that has taken years of breeding and hard work by expert growers to bring you the Black Charm Lily!

Bewitching, deep, dark red – so dark that it is nearly black! One of the darkest Asiatic Lilies on the market! Dark orange stamen and strong green stems accent this long-blooming, gorgeous statement Lily. Large, dramatic, bold blooms with a lovely satiny sheen, the shimmering petals will just glow in the sun! Long, tubular, trumpet-shaped blooms are held high above long, strong stems, returning year after year!

The strong 26-36 inch tall stems are fringed in strappy leaves and call pollinators galore! These quality spring-planted perennial bulbs are hardy in well-drained soil year-round throughout USDA growing zones 3 through 8 and come back bigger and better every year! The bulblets form on the sides of the parent bulb to multiply into tidy clumps 6-8 inches wide.

Planting and Application:

Black Charm deserves to be a stand-alone specimen plant, a focal point in containers, and planted en masse, but also holds its own in a perennial border and cutting garden. Sure to stand out anywhere and everywhere and attract butterflies galore! Try a row along a pathway or groupings dotting a rock wall where the dramatic color is kicked up a notch when used in large clusters.

Ideal for use as focal points in containers and mixed planters, anyone with some sun can enjoy the gothic beauty of these outlandish blossoms! Combine with red and purple blooms, or with plants with dark foliage. The dramatic hue really sets off Roses and Hydrangea flowers. You’ll love pairing the star-shaped blooms of Lilies with spikey Veronica, fluffy Peony, or frilly Crape Myrtles!

Tips for Care:

Asiatic Lily bulbs are easy-care and very cold-hardy. Tolerant of a wide range of soils and conditions and loving moderately moist soil, they can be very drought-tolerant once established. Asiatic Lilies need full sun but do appreciate afternoon shade in the hottest climates. Plant in about any well-drained soil with moderate moisture and fertility. Deadhead after bloom but leave the foliage until frost to make food for the bulb, then prune to the ground when they die back in late autumn.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Deadhead After Bloom & Prune Back Late Autumn
  • Mulch Beds Well
