Lily 'Black Out', Asiatic Lily 'Black Out', Lily 'Blackout'


Lilium 'Black Out' is a fascinating Asiatic Lily with large, dark carmine red, upward-facing flowers with an even darker red-to-black shading in the center of each petal. One of the darkest red lilies, it produces clusters of 4-5 blossoms per stem which look fabulous when combined with yellow or creamy colors.

  • Blooming in early - mid summer, this Lily constitutes an excellent border plant, providing striking color and contrast to the perennial border and mixes beautifully with annuals and other summer flowering bulbs.
  • It is well suited to containers and the cutting garden as it makes excellent fresh cut flowers. Plant in groups of 3, 6 or 12 bulbs for a striking display!
  • Growing up to 2-3 feet tall (60-90 cm) on slender stems clad with lanceolate, dark green leaves, it performs best in full sun or part shade and is not fussy about soils, provided they are well-drained. Good moisture is required and dry soils should be avoided!
  • When flowering is over, cut back leaves and stems after they turn yellow. This plant may self-seed.
  • Plant in fall or early spring in the garden. Potted plants may be planted any time between spring and fall.
  • This Lily is a member of the Asiatic Hybrids Division (I) which includes lilies with small to medium-sized flowers, usually bowl-shaped, flat or with recurved tepals and with an open center. The flower color is generally uniform or with contrasting tepal-tips and/or throat. Spots are often absent. The flowers have little or no scent and their leaves are scattered with a narrow to medium width. There are 9 different types of lilies classified by the Royal Horticultural Society. And they are all real eye-catchers!
