Purple lilies are splendid flowers which can adorn your home or garden beautifully, as well as your home. Growing them is not very hard, as long as you provide the right conditions from the very beginning. First of all, you should plant the seeds or the bulbs about 6 inches deep in the ground. Second of all, make sure the soil is rich, acidic, well-drained and organic and there is about 6 inches between each flower as they need enough air to develop well. Third of all, the purple lilies require full sun exposure while growing, but partial shade too (ideally in the afternoon). The leaves of the purple lily are long and pointy in deep green colour. The flower blooms from the early days of summer until the early autumn. If you take good care of the flowers and they get enough water and sun throughout their growing period, they will reach up to 8 feet tall. After planting, water them well and make sure you keep them warm while they are growing.
