Perennial Starlight Express Oriental carpet border lilies thrive in Zones 3 through 8 in full sun to part shade. Bulbs should be planted in spring or fall, about 6 inches deep and 9 to 12 inches apart in well-drained clay, loamy or sandy soil. Vigorous and hardy, these enchanting Oriental lilies (Lilium oriental) come back stronger and even more abundant in subsequent years. Perfect for walkways and low flower beds, these gorgeous rose coloured blooms are also unparalleled in defining patio edges and other landscape borders. They admirably front any number of taller lilies or other perennials in formal garden designs, and may even steal the show. Stunning in containers, they are an ideal choice for someone who wants a lot of colour and drama in a limited space. Grow an inviting blanket of vibrant colour with Starlight Express Oriental carpet border lilies.
